What advice would you give someone starting this project? Plan the whole project out ahead of time. Do a complete muslin fit first and work from that. Know exactly how you are going to execute it, but be patient and be willing to make a change if necessary. Just don't be afraid to try it.

Beautiful! Do u have a tutorial on how to stitch this dress??

01/28/2014 Flag

Sorry, no tutorial. A satin corset, very fitted, with attached tulle in many layers. Tulle over the top with a satin bias piece for the neck.

How do you get that shape with the tulle does anyone know?

03/11/2014 Flag

About 5 layers of tulle with a fold at the bottom and gathered into the waist. I then fluffed and separated and pulled the layers back up into the skirt to get the effect I wanted and hand stitched (tacked) areas to create fullness. It held up very well all night even with lots of dancing twirling.

Did u use a pattern? This is exactly the style of dress i hav ebeen looking for for 4 years xxx

05/18/2014 Flag

I used a pattern to get me started on the top, but altered it quite a bit. I can't remember which pattern it was. The top also has a lot of boning to keep it shaped. Other that that, I did the rest myself.

Wow thats beautiful! Did you use the tulle for the top and back as well?

Tulle over satin. With a satin bias for the neck edging

Sorry I did not reply to these sooner, I had no idea I had questions regarding this dress.
