Ordered this fabric off ebay. Its long jogn material. anf its pretty sweet if i do say so myself. The dress isnt bad either. Critics are more then welcome to coment. beings how i never had any classes or anything always willing to learn the errors i've made.

And my sewing machine is down so this was hand stitched. but i think i did a fanominal job with that. so onwards.

you cant see the little rufflev deal cause of the brightness. Sorry about that but this dress is excenent camoflage, Im 5'9 - 5'10  and 215lbs but i dont think i look that big in it.

Sorry i have no FULL pictures did the best i could.

Made the belt too. it ties in back. Its 3 strips of eyelet tape that tapers to 1 strip where is ties. sorry no pics. i will when i put up the tutorial though Wink

Ok so my dress is already made but i think i found out a way to do it so you can make it with ease!!

1.)I measured my over bust, or 'high bust... and mine is is 42 so:<b>My square of material is 42in X 42in</b> sew the top together. just a bit.

2.)Then cut a <b>Triangle</b> Mine is 43in. long cause i have to fold it over where i sewed the top shut. and then just sew the rest in.

And  I am handsewing but that is no excuse for  sloppy sewing. my seams look like this.

3.)And now its time for the straps... I used eyelet tape.

4.)Now because your underbust is smaller then the dress allows with the insert... time for a little gathering. I pin mine with a safety pin until i know its where I want it.

5.)Now you need to gather your clevage line, a then added a button just cause it looks cuter. Do what you want as this is optional.

6.)now <b>The Belt</b> is pretty simple. start with 3- 1 inch strips of that eyelet tape. and sew the edges so it tapers to one stip of tape.

7.)Add red ribbon.

8.)Forthe hood I cut a half circle out. and added some random pleats.

9.)thenn added a square hood. I sewed the back and and the top corners down. Which creates these little loop things, which is needed since this is a dual piece.You can actually wear this as<b>Either a hod or a jacket Wink</b>

10.)Add matching fabric to the trim and vuala!!

Also if you have trouble with strait lines I uses clear tape and make a line also using back stitch helps alot. so heres 2 examples in one.
