Amazing!  Grin Alleluia! Kiss I started making the dress but I want it to have fluffy sleeves. Can you tell me of a way that i can go about this? (I haven't tried to tackle sleeves yet, never mind fluffy ones!) Hope you can help and if you can't thats okay.

For those of you with hourglass-y figures (a category I mostly fall into), I plan on making this dress this weekend, and this is my proposed solution to the fitting problem:  my hips are just a tad bit wider than my bust, and I know from experience that something that flares from my waist isn't necessarily going to accommodate me everywhere, and be attractive.  So when drafting my pattern, I marked my bust, my waist, my hips, and the flare, and the length between the respective measurements.  When I cut out the pieces, I'm going to scoop the waist up so there's actually a little straight bit in the middle section, where it'll bulge out above and below for the bust and hips, leave enough width to go over the hips, and then flare out from that point.  I'll try and post pictures once they're cut.  I'm also going to attempt to make it out of a grand total of 2 yards and 2 inches of fabric (I'm leaving off the ruffle, though, as I just want a regular sun dress), so we'll see how it goes.

Is there any other way to make the dress poof without the added expense/torture of a petticoat? Could I just get some contrasting cotton and lace instead and layer underneath the skirt portion?

How did you attach the sleeves to the dress? I have some really bad scars on my arm and I need them covered, so its either attach sleeves on this or ALWAYS wear a shirt under it (ugg)

Thank you!
