gorgeous!
please do a tute that would be awesome!

To be honest, if I were to do a tute, it would be pretty short Tongue

just sew the waistband of the skirt to make it tighter if it needs to be, just make sure you can get it on & off again!
Then make a bodice part how you'd like it to look, ie, strapless, straps, corset.. etc etc, then sew it onto the skirt! I added the ties to the back because I wasn't sure of my models bust size, and having something to tie up means it will bit a variety of sizes. Smiley

I'm really glad you all like it, it's one of my favourite things I've made to date!!

This dress is amazing, and the materials blend so well together! I am in the process of making a dress somewhat inspired by what you made, although it is a bit different. I am in love with it!

I don't think I can say anything about your dress that hasn't been said, but I always like to give my two cents.  Grin It's absolutely gorgeous and you should be so proud of this beautiful dress! I am very jealous.  Wink

This really is a fantastic dress, I must agree. I really enjoy the photography of the model as well, I can understand the need for a water mark!
