How *hard* could it be?

I picked up some really nice snowflake foil organza a little while ago so I could make a spectacular Snow (drag) Queen outfit for the bar in December.  I found a pattern that was really good, but wanted a puffy skirt.

I used this tutorial https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=298574.20 from Rossie

It was very time consuming to do the strips of fabric, partially because my fabric was fraying like crazy!  I used a tealight candle to melt the edges of all my strips to keep them from unraveling (and to keep me from having to machine finish the edges).

I just used some lame for the yoke.  I LOVE how puffy it is Smiley

Thanks again to Rossie for the great tutorial!

Very pretty! From the thumbnail, I thought you made it of bubble wrap or the like-great fabric choices.

I give myself very good advice, but I very seldom follow it.
I could make that for you, but I won't.
