Hey y'all!
Finished this a few days ago it was really easyy! It's a dropped waist Toga dress. The material was really see-through so I made a bandeau top for under neath and layered the skirt a lot. I also made a matching headband (it's around the neck). Okay so here goes!

Okay cut two of the top part(A1and2)--the one shouldered part--it needs to be long enough to reach where you want the dropped waist to be. Cut one bust peice(B) (this needs to be your bust ALL the way around, not half). Cut one sash (C) that needs to be about two feet (depending on whether you want a bow or a knot--if you want a knot it can be considerably shorter) more than the length around your dropped waist. Cut two skirt peices (D1and2), both about 3/4 your waist (i accidently wrote 1/2 and extra on the thing, but ignore that). Finally cut one lopsided petal shaped peice(E) that is half the dropped waist length.
Step 1:

Match up the two top peices--A1 and A2. Sew where indicated by Xs.
Step 2:

Okay now match up one of the skirt peices (D1) to the bottom of the sewn top. There will be extra hanging off, fold this over the edge.
Step 3:

Sew the extra peice.
Steps 4 and 5:

Repeat this with peice D2.
Step 6 (not really a "step"):

Okay so now you have the basic dress.
Step 7:

Fold the bust peice--peice B--in half. Sew up the short edge as indicated in the picture.
Step 8:

Take peice E and place it atop the dress. Sew it in at the waist but MAKE SURE YOU ONLY SEW IT TO THE FRONT OF THE DRESS AND NOT ALL THE WAY THROUGH. THIS WILL MAKE THE DRESS IMPOSSIBLE TO WEAR!! Fold it over to the back.
Step 9:

Sew it to the back of the dress the way you did to the front of the dress is step 8.
Step 10 (also barely a step):

Tie the sash (peice C) around the dropped waist of the dress. Now you're done!

Okay and quickly for the headband: cut a peice long enough to wrap around your head twice. Cut it into three peices (leave about an inch of uncut fabric at the end of it) and braid it. Knot it at the end and wrap it around your head twice. Adjust it until it feels comfortable and then knot it in the back so it doesnt come undone.
I hope you enjoyed this dress! If you have any questions feel free to ask!

Didn't read the tute because I'm too lazy to sew clothes but love the finished result. So an action shot is called for. LOL

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!
