You mean "Fergie" as in Whatsername Fergusen??? You know, the dappy royal one? Hhahahaa, you're kidding if so- has she released a single or something?

*off to check out the video...*

Ok. I'm back.
Neither of the "sources" for the video on the link you posted worked for me Sad So, sorry, can't help much with the dress suggestions. Does anyone have a pic?

Must say, curiousity did get the better of me and I googled it.... its NOT Fergie-Fergie, right? Unless she's undergone some SERIOUS plastic surgery ;P

Good luck with your project!

You came in from the darkness and held the door open wide
You stood there like a vision before my unbelieving eyes
I believe in what I see and also what I hear
But did the night play tricks on me or were you really there.

Try a screenshot next time, it's much easier (just push the 'print screen' button on your keyboard, paste the image into paint or similar to crop and save) and usually the quality is better.  =)

she's definitely not the Duchess of York but she DOES seem to play up the name similarity (her album appears to be named "Dutchess" (sic), etc.) and she was possibly nicknamed "Fergie" because others heard it used to refer to Sarah Ferguson first.
It's hard to be sure just looking at the few shots I saw (and I gave up trying to see the videos after two failures. The MTV site wouldn't show it cause I'm in Canada. Blah!) but it looks like a wide black band (velvet maybe?) for the high waistline, with a gathered skirt (rather than a circle skirt - the plaid pattern doesn't fall right to be a circle). I'd make the "waistband" first, then gather the skirt material onto it (2x or more the original measurement you use for the waistband - depends on the weight of the fabric you're gathering)

For the bodice,well, that's harder to be sure. Is it just a halter top, ie, backless with the two halves meeting behind her neck? If so, then I think what I'd suggest is marking on yourself where the top of the black waistband is supposed to fall (either with a cord tied around your chest or just making the dress up to that point and simply putting the skirt on.) Once you have that marked, I'd measure twice - once for the "neckline" and once for the outside of the bodice. that is, measure from the center front of the waistband, around the back of the neck, and back to the center front. Then measure from the point on the waistband that you want the outside of the bodice to meet up with, up around the back of the neck, then down to the matching point on the other side. While that might not be perfect, that should give you an idea of how long each side of each 'cup' should be to hopefully avoid the gapping that I think you were having problems with. (it looks like the dress itself is the only support she's wearing, so it's up to you how much if anything you want to gather onto the bodice to produce the "cups". If you're particularly full busted you might want a third measurement - center of each 'side', over the fullest part of the breast, behind the neck and down the other side again. Or just add an inch or two to the bottom middle of each side to make it have a little more fullness.)

I hope that made sense, if it didn't I can do some sketches for you if you want. Good luck!
