Hi every one!
Can any one give advice on making this dress.


I'm 500% in love with it but don't have $500 to drop on a dress.
I was thinking of getting a bustier and working off of that.
Also any ideas where I could get similar beautiful organza preferably in the Vancouver area?

Thanks a million!

Simplicity 2693 view c. Sorry but I can't copy paste links on this here iPhone or rather don't know how. But ya, make the ruffles with organza and create a bodice ruffle attached just under the cummerbund.

My first thought was a Vogue pattern that is out of print and isn't even on the website anymore Sad

I would use that pattern with the strapless bodice, shirred midriff and gathered skirt. Make it in the pink color out of satin or cotton, boned, fully lined. Then, just add your organza layers on top. Although I have personally used this pattern and it is great, I would maybe suggest making the midriff that's actually part of the dress flat, then adding the organza layers, THEN sewing a shirred sash on top. I think it would look cleaner that way.
