I am making my dress for my senior prom. So far it's going good. It's a light pretty greenish-blue color. The top looks kind of like a corset (w/out the whale bones) and the skirt part is- flouncy?(I guess thats how to describe it - you know where it flutters out when you spin around).  I am over halfway done but I was wondering if anyone had any tips for making the petticoat to help give the skirt more pouf or if anyone had any ideas on how to decorate the dress to give it more detail (I was thinking some delicate lace). thanks!

Crinoline makes a skirt pouf out, but is not stocked in my local sewing shop. For some more ideas, I would look on the Promalong thread cos there are loads of different people making their own prom dress
