Thanks you appleshannon for the tutorial  Smiley
I gave it a try this week-end. I really like the way the skirt-part drapes. Here is the result :

My version is slightly different from the original :
- the top part joins (no space between my breasts)
- the skirt part in longer
- I had to open it in the back in order to get in and out  Undecided

I may make this again in a better fabric ! Tongue

i'm curious about the back - does it have a cowl-ish draping effect in the back? i've been looking at your tutorial and thinking of making a dress for myself. but i was wondering about the back of the "top" part and think i might be missing something. if the elastic is at the top of the "bottom," what prevents the top of the "top" from gaping in the back? or did you cut your "top" much narrower than your "bottom"?

I have the same questions, I think I missed something in the tutorial  Huh
But, here is how I did it : My top is narrower than the bottom, I put all the gathers in the back in order to get a "slim fit".

So I didn't use any elastic at all, I cannot figure how to keep the elastic effect if I sew something narrower next to the bottom part. (I hope it's clear).   As I said, I had to open the dress in the back (I used a button to close it), otherwise I cannot get in or out of the dress  Roll Eyes

I made a new version of this dress here : https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=364700.0
This time, the opening is a corset inspired thing (also the skirt part has an elastic band in the back). Now it's easy to get in and out of the dress. AND... I think it looks cute  Tongue
