I'm going to be making Ariel's (The Little Mermaid) blue dress but I really don't know what sort of fabrics to use. I want it to look realistic.
I'm also wondering about the construction of the dress, should I make the dress and then have the black bodice a separate piece that goes over it? Or should it be three different pieces?
Here's an image of the dress:

Any help would be so much appreciated.

I would make it as three pieces:  skirt, blouse, and corset.  And I'd probably use cotton broadcloth, with twill for the corset.  Good luck!

I agree-three seperate pieces. I have always imagined a velvet corset for some reason......

Ooh...corduroy would be pretty, too.  I'm just a wimp, when it comes to sewing velvet, but I'm sure that would be lovely, as well!

The corset looks navy to me. But, yes, blouse, skirt that goes to the waist, and a corset.

I made this one! I made it as three pieces: a blouse, a skirt, and a bodice. For the bodice, I used a navy suede that gave the whole costume a really nice texture. I also made the back lace up.

My favorite part is the hairbow! I stuffed it like a little pillow so it sticks out like hers.
