I just graduated from FITs Fashion Design BFA program with my specialization in childrenswear! This was the final outfit I made. I was quite fond of it, and honestly the skirt was simple enough to create. I thought it would be nice to post up on here (especially seeing as I havent been active on here in years!). The skirt is layered rows of tulle (in multiple layers) cut into scalloped edges and sewn onto the base tulle with a row of lace and a hand sewed row of beading. The lining is a heavy bridal satin which is hemmed with a scalloped edge as well (which is unable to really be seen in the pictures unfortunately). It was all gathered and sewn into a 2" wide elastic waistband that I had dyed. The top is made of a lighter weight grey satin, the same base tulle used for the skirt, and the same bridal satin that lines the skirt. The arm and neck holes are finished with a woven corded piping.

Comments and questions are welcomed!

Oh my god it's so pretty! So that fabric was rainbow and frilly to begin with? You didn't have to sew a whole bunch of layers together to get that look/effect?

It's just beautiful!  What little girl would't love that? 
I will say, though, it does NOT look fun to sew!   Tongue

No, the fabric started out as just plain tulle yardage, i had to cut it all and sew it into the frilly scalloped fabric. It was labor intensive but simple enough to do!

Thank you to everybody else who commented!

This is STUNNING, for a girl or a woman. I really love this. I can see the labor that must have gone into it, but the construction appears so clean and simple (a real skill, to make it look so easy). Beautiful; great job! What do you want to do with your degree?

Great job - I love all the design elements you used in creating it!
