In January is my prom and as a craftsteromaniac I decided to sew something by myself. So, I started thinking, more and more, and I imagined this:




But I don't know how to sew bra and corset part ( thanks god I know how to make a skirt...)
I'm thinking about some tough fabric for the top of dress and georgette for the bottom, what do you think?
 
I have just a little time for making this project so I'm begging you!

HOW TO SEW that 'mermaid' thing?

This pattern is very pretty and somewhat similar: http://www.simplicity.com/p-4461-special-occasion.aspx

I have it at home.  If you omit the ruched midriff, and just use the lining pieces for both the lining and the outer fabric, it'll give you the sort of shape you have in your sketch.

This pattern comes close to your bodice: http://mccallpattern.mccall.com/m6029-products-10727.php?page_id=109

Vogue patterns may have something more accurate, but they'll also probably be more difficult.

You could also use this tutorial for the midriff: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=122286.0

I was afraid that no one would answer; therefore, I'm so glad that you give me some patterns and I have to thank you!

Thank you very much ; )
