this dress isn't from any of the movies or anything i just found this picture on it when i was browsing the internet. i'm totally in love with it and i'd love to make my own... i was thinking though , instead of the top of this dress i'd make it more of a full top cuz cleavage is totally not my thing. i don't know how i'd go about this....especially on how to make the leafy-triangle things for the skirt. any tips? help will be greatly appreciated!

The bottom of the dress should be pretty simple, you just get netting or tool (depending on what you want) and you cut them into long strips. there are lots of youtube videos on how to make a simple tutu..basically the same thing with this skirt ^_^

Hope this helps

Hi there, this skirt just looks like a kind of tutu, and should be really easy and cheap to make. All you'd really need is tulle or netting and something to work as a waistband. Here's a tutorial to make the kind with edges like you like: http://www.makethemyourself.com/tutu.html
Good luck!

I second the tutu recommendations.  Tulle is really easy to work with, since it doesn't ravel, and it's super cheap.  Get some and play with it.

The top (there really isn't much of it, is there!) looks like a doily with a ribbon sewn on it.  You could collect some old doilies and piece them together (or sew them to a tank top you like the shape of) to make a less revealing top.

oh thanks so much you guys! the tutu idea sounds way simpler than what i thought i had to do so thanks for that! Smiley

You could also always just wear a top under it (tank, cami, or whatever) and make it similar to the pic.....
Smiley Just another idea.

good luck! I hope it turns out like you want it!

Tutorial is Great ! It definitely helps the newbies like me . I also try this dress .but the Bottom of the dress is kind of mystery to me instead of looks simple.any way,I hope I'll do good.

oh, i do love the idea! not so much the tiny top;)
you could do a triangle top thing...sort of like a tank with an empire wasitline and triangles for the "top" part...if that makes any sense at all.
