TheSickRose - I would probably put some contrast ribbon or something round the middle and then add some netting in the same colour at the bottom, or just add contrast where you want to drag attention to (where your thinnest or where you don't mind guys looking at Smiley )

The pattern I am making (Simplicity 5724) says I need crinoline, but my local sewing shop doesn't sell it (the shop assistant hadn't even heard of it) so would fusible interfacing do (it goes in the bertha, which is along the neck bit, and is machine basted to the fabric according to the instructions. The pattern also says you are meant to wear a crinoline skirt underneath it - will this matter if I make the dress a little shorter.

TheSickRose:

   Your dress is real hot. If you don't mind going with a more playful look, I would suggest accessorizing that bitch. Like pink fishnets cut off at the ankles, or chunky costume jewelry like big bright earrings, or a long bead neckless. Or fingerless lace gloves. Or a big ass bow in your hair. Or outrageous shoes. Or matching eyeshadow. I'm getting a little crazy thinking about it. Calm down, Sundance. Some people are not as excited as you are about dressing like you are in the 80's again. . .
   If looking "respectable" or "current" is more your thing, I think big pearls would go beautifully with your dress. That dress + pearls + plus ribbon could equal a very glamorous you. Good luck!

I really like the idea of the ribbon a lot. Thank you!

My practice dress, Cut on Thursday night, sewn on Friday night!


Now the real one will be way awesomer because it will not scrunch on my stomach. Instead it will have a zipper and I will not have to hold it together with my hand. Also, the neck will be less ridiculous because it will be nice drapey satin or something instead of $1/yd stuff from Walmart. Also I will learn how to make darts that do not look like nipples. . . anybody want to help me with that one?
 
Also, I still can't decide if I want to make my real dress just like this one (view C), or with the front drapes (view D). My pattern is New Look 6455-------> http://simplicity.com/index.cfm?page=wnlook.cfm

sundance-

I LOVE this pattern.

About darts- I work in a costume shop, and I still have trouble with the darts thing. The best advice I can give is to sew a curved line instead of a straight line for the dart. Sort of curve the line up to the point the dart is suppossed to end. This sort of follows the shape of your body better. Hopefully that helps.
