I'm going to be quietly cheering you on from the sidelines. I'm considering whether to make my dress or buy one, and I'm getting married in June so I'm a little crunched for time. I hope you do a great job! I'll be interested to see what your final dress looks like.

I really like the fabric, that's gorgeous. I've had a hard time finding really bold patterns in attractive colors like that. The craftsmanship looks really flawless and professional.

the description does not mention boning, and it doesn't look boned to me--it says the back is stretchy, which is a standard alternative method for making the bodice fitted enough to stay up (lots of cheap dance tutus are made this way).

This is right, the back is stretchy, but there is definitely boning of some kind in the front. I know, becauase I can feel them poking into my boobs when I bend over! The stretchy back makes it fit a larger variety of stomach/boob sizes.

One thing about this dress that might be hard to do is the top -- it has boning in it to help it stay in place since it  is strapless (which is great for me -- I don't have much in the chest department to hold a dress up!)
The bubble skirt part is really easy once you figure it out -- check out skirts at the mall and Target to find bubble skirts and then just examine them and you'll figure out pretty quickly how they are constructed, and then all the bubble skirt tutorial posted here may be easier to follow. I just made one the other night and it turned out well....

Yeah -- that's way the heck cheap. You should get $20, I'd think. I usually sell my bags for $30 to friends & their friends, but they're usually custom-ordered and embellished (stencilled or embroidered with stuff) so it takes me a lot longer to make them. Get what you can though, it's cute!!

That's really pretty! I love buying sheets from the thrift store -- I had to stop going for a while because it became an addiction, but that's the best place to find "retro" fabric -- and so cheap, especially since circle skirts take so much flippin fabric.

Great tutorial, I really like that style of bag -- I'll have to give it a go sometime. I'm working on a purse right now with halfway complicated handles that is driving me up the wall (I've been through three handle prototypes!) and I'd like to do one with the handles built right in to the main piece!
