i found this really cute rebecca taylor dress in teen vogue the other day
then i decided that i want to make one just like it!
so i bought dark turquoise and white polka dot fabric and some black mesh

The lines look very simple: there's almost no shaping. The bodice is a convex tube; measure around your chest above your boobs and under your armpits for the top measurement; you'll probably want it rather close fitting so as not to fall down (whoops!) so I'd only add maybe a half inch of ease; measure around your boobs for the middle width and around your waist for the bottom. You'll definitely want a zipper so that it can be made snug enough not to fall down. The petticoat layers look to be gathered (approx 2 times) rectangles (not circles) with a slightly longer mesh layer (maybe a half inch) directly underneath. Because there isn't really extreme volume, I'd venture to guess that they're attached to an underlayer (which would explain the other black fabric above the knee that is most definitely not mesh) at varying points. The underlayer is, in turn, attached to the bodice.

Good luck with the dress! & Pretty please post pictures Cheesy
