....and already i have a question. Smiley

how come, if 67.75 x 1.5 is 97.125, did you round all the way down to 90?

i didn't actually round down--i just did lazy math.  Smiley  i wanted about 1.5 times my height but i don't like bothering with all those decimal points, so i started with 60" and added half of that. 

that's how we high school drop outs do math.  Cheesy

oh my, I love it!  it just might be perfect for a couple yds of stretchy material I have laying around.

Well... I just finished it!!

I think that it was a bit harder for me than it should have been, but that's my fault.  Note to everyone... if you are going to try this with 4-way stretch, like this dance fabric that I have....  It's hard!!!  It slipped everywhere, it's difficult to cut, and if you are like me, who is literally hundreds of miles away for my serger for the summer....  this may be a bit difficult.  That one seam too forever because my thread kept ether skipping or breaking....  my sewing skills are all shot to hell with this dress.  But...  The fabric feels great against the skin, so it's ok.

But in the end, I love it!  It's a lot of fun to play with, and it's fun to make.  I mean, walking around your bedroom dragging two ten feet long strips of fabric is fun, people!!  I also made a bit of a variation (other than the strap length) in that I kept the bottom a square, not a circle.  Fun fun!  Thanks for the tutorial!!!!  It's awesome.

Love the dress, and the look.  I have a really stupid basic question, but could you wear a bra under it?  There is no-way I'm going without (just not the look for me).  Could possibly manage without around the house, but wouldn't open the door.  Any suggestions for a super prude?J Huh

I'm definitely going to make this dress.

I don't think I understand where the band goes. I couldn't really see it in the pics in the tutorial. Could you draw a picture maybe?
