I LOVE this skirt!!!! Definitely planning on finding some cute fabric to make it! If you don't mind my asking, I'm a little confused on how the bustle works. I looked at your tutorial (thanks so much by the way!!) But I'm still not quite sure how to fasten the ribbons or how the bustle stays up when you pull them. Any help you can give me would be great! Thanks!!!!

Yeah! It was actually really easy, as far as complications go. I just bought ivory and navy ribbon from Joann's and literally just sewed it to the bottom hem in stripes. And I sewed the ivory ribbon to the waistline and neck line and added the bow. (I was going to do the ribbon around the entire waistline, not just the front, but I realized since the ribbons doesn't stretch, it was hard enough to put on over my boobs anyway :-P The sleeves I really want to change because they look uneven and sloppy, but I just wrapped a ribbon around them and sewed it. And the back, which used to be a high neck, I just cut a section out of it, and replaced it with stripes of ribbon. The lace was pre-gathered (I think I got a spool of it out of a bargain bin at Walmart). I did gather it more for the bit on the bodice though. And...that's about it. If I were to redo anything, it would be the sleeves, they're a little stretched from where I gathered them. But thanks for your comments guys! I wore my dress today and got a bunch of compliments  Smiley

Thanks! It took a while, but it was way fun. Although since it was my very first sewing project ever, I keep seeing things wrong with it now that I want to change! Haha.

It took a couple weeks to finish, but I Was only sewing for an hour or so here and there. The ribbons and lace didn't take horribly long as far as hand-sewing goes, but the ruffle took forever because I had to stitch each gather separately and all that. But I'm pretty happy how it turned out Smiley

]I started out with a navy blue, very plain tunic-style top, and I realized I never wore it, so I decided to turn it into a dress! And since my sewing machine is broken, I unfortunately had to do the whole thing by hand  Sad And of course I didn't take pictures of the before. But here's a couple pictures of essentially what it looked like (except navy) (Click on the pictures to make them bigger )

And I added ribbon, lace, ruffles, and about 6 inches worth of length to the bottom, and voila! Dress!!
Dress on me

Just the dress:

Ruffles up close:

Bodice up close:

And the back:

Give me feeback on what you like, don't like, etc! This is my first sewing project, well...EVER. And I had to do it all by hand, so it took forever!!! But let me know what you guys think! Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley Smiley
