Yeah I would say you jumped into the deep end! Which I try to do myself as often as possible - so I can't blame you for it. Wink

If it were me I would start with this tute for the top corset

Then I think I would try to make the skirt by making several of those circular tutus that stick straight out ( http://www.momdot.com/howtomakeatutu ) and sewing them together by the waistbands until I got the length I wanted. Luckily tulle is cheap, cause you may want to make a mockup first!

Yeah I thought Oliver deserved to go. I mean what kind of designer does not what real people to wear his clothes? Anyone can pay a model to wear their designs - but what is generally considered to be the goal is to have reg. people pay to wear their designs.

That being said I think Anya should have lost this challenge, they are always a bit fuzzy on if they are judging just the one look or all the looks the designers have made that season.

You can make linen thread perfect by make a snip at the selvage and pulling one of the strings then cut down that thread where the fabric bunches up on the crosswise grain. Hope that helps. Smiley

I think the white leaves are just straight panels sewn together horizontally then sewn to the waistband of the skirt, and the green leaves are sewn separately to the same waistband.

Here's a pic of what I'm getting at since I am in photoshop already - the upper on layer 2 line is a waistband.

How about a couple of peasant tops? You could line them with solid black fabric and wear 'em with jeans...:?

They seem to give a pretty detailed account of how they made their own-

This dress is created with two separate pieces. The underskirt is made up of three different layers. The bottom layer is a beautiful ivory satin that is covered with a layer of ivory organza. The top layer is made up of gorgeous creamy white leaves that are completely lined and extend around the entire dress. The three layers are gathered together into a waistband that attaches with two large hook and loops. The bodice is completely lined. It is constructed of a creamy green satin. Additional darker leaves are made from a silk-like flowing fabric that comes up the bodice and drapes around the skirt. The creamy white leaves at the neckline are securely sewn along one side and secured with two invisible snaps to the other side of the bodice. The shoulder straps are constructed of sheer nude organza. The straps insure that the dress stays in place and still looks exactly like Tianas original dress in the movie. The water lily snaps on at the hip and is constructed of the same fabric as the underskirt and finished with a twirling vine that drapes down the skirt.

Since you already made the bottom piece attach to the bodice  I would just make a full length skirt with the organza layer, the white layer, and the bottom of the green leaves thats completely separate from the dress. Then just attach the very top leaf to the upper crossover leaf bodice. Hope that makes sense.  Wink

I once made a vest out of flimsy polyester by fusing it with lightweight interfacing then flat-lining it to a layer of denim. You would have to be very committed to said print to go through so much though, which a I was of course as it was a cameo print! Smiley
20  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Inspired idea? ...or not? on: June 05, 2011 05:26:54 PM
I have always hated the idea of a at-home sweatshop that turns out the same item over and over, it also doesn't look great in a photo when everyones wearing the same dress. So  my post-alchemy solution to this is a "design it yourself" feature on my etsy. I would love everyones opinion on my solution to this problem, I'm not sure if its very professional, or if people would even like that option, but it does save me time in not having to make tons of dresses for prototypes that I don't need (and in random sizes)....I dunno what day you?

here. is the listing in question. Huh
