Hey guys!
My friends and I are doing something from Legally Blonde for our cabaret show, and I'm playing Serena...the girl in the blue and white dress.  I REALLY wanted to try and make this dress...but i don't know where to start and there's no pattern. 
Some girl made it but she didn't know how because her mom did it and i dont think she wanted me to know anyway...so i'd totally appreciate it SO much if you guys could help me out!
What fabrics do I use? How do i do the pleats? Where to start..

Here's the dress

Same dress just different color (I'll be making the blue one, this is just to show what the whole dress looks like..)

I would go to your local fabric store and look through the pattern catalogs in the costume section for a cheer uniform or tennis dress.

Make sure to measure yourself before you go. You want to buy a pattern buy the measurement size not the number size.

Hope you can find what you're looking for.  Wink
