Really? Neat-o!

Which part? The skirt of the dress I basicall just folded in half and decided the highest I wanted it to come and tapered the cut from there. Once I was happy with the shape, I trimmed it with the satin. I just used folded bands of the satin that I ironed to crease, and sewed it on, ruffling/pleating as I went. The tutu was just 5 yards each of 4 different colors of tulle, that I trimmed by sewing ribbon along the edges. I them ruffled all of the layers of tulle onto a stretchy waistband, so that I could have it seperate from the dress. It was actually pretty easy! The pleating on the bodice was the killer! =P

And by the way, I LOVE Pearls Before Swine. =]
