I like!

So AA uses a lycra based fabric, but it looks like you got good results with other types of fabric?  I wonder how jersey would do?

I have always wanted one of these dresses but I never wanted to pay so much for it. Thanks for the tutorial, this is going on my list of things to make.

Can i ask what type of fabrics you used? I assumed you'd need stretch fabrics to make the dress, but yours appear woven and work just as well.

Can't wait to try it myself!

Oh man! I've been lusting after this dress and never thought to just make one, thanks for the tute!
I might be a little confused though, when you talk about roughly 30 inches do you mean that's the length of the dress? And I'm multiplying my chest measurement by 1 and 3/4? Argh. I can't follow simple instructions sometimes, I apologize.

I had a time figuring this out this morning too, but then my brain perkalated with coffee and it came to me lol.

The 30" is the length, so you can make it longer or shorter, your choice.  The 1 3/4 would be your measurements plus 3/4", for example if your measurements are 36" then you would take 36"*1.75 for a total of 63".
