I love this dress, but I am not gonna pay like $60 on it. Does anyone have some suggestions on how to make it?

If you go to some fabric stores (like Joann's) they have material that is already shirred for you.  The top portion of the dress is shirred and the bottom 3/4 is the fabric (un shirred).  Basically, you just measure the diameter of your chest and use those measurements for how much material to purchase.

doing the shirring yourself is kinda fun, though.  When I did it I just ran a zig-zag stitch over a piece of, sinched all the elastic up to the same diameter, which was quite small, then it stretched out to fit nicely.
