hi A. Chan, it puffs itself, organza is really puffy especially when tehre are layers of it
wow! great job! I love the train dress!
thanks everyone :)
there's not really much to put in the form of tutorial.. the dress was almost improvised :D so I'll just write down what I did in this comment.
1. I took an old strapless bra and a top with straps and I cut them off. I din't even stitched it, I just glued it all around the bra on the inside and cut a little to make it heart shaped. that's all with the top
2. I folded organza fabric in 3 parts, so I got 3 layers of organza, 33 cm each and 3 meters long. I didn't even cut it!
3. I folded it and sew it together that way to make it puffy and almost a skirt.
4. I sew it to a belt I had laying around
5. I sew the edges of organza alreday wearing the skirt! :D I even had to cut it while taking it off! haha
So you can see it was really last minute dress haha! but ssshh.. nobody knew that on the party and I'm sure you couldn't really tell because I got a lot of compliments for it!
oh great you made one for yourself! :D
and it's more complicated then mine, so that's probably why it took you some more time. i just took a red belt to put around my waist so I practically only had to make the skirt :) plus it wasn't the first organza tutu I've done, with some practice it takes you less time.
Anyway, turned out great hope you'll have occasion to wear it soon!
yes I'll make tutorial soon (first week of march I hope) and show you how to make the skirt section :) it's really easy
Holly, I do have a short single layer satine as underskirt but onlo so it wouldn't be see through (if u wear black panties under 3 layers of organza they are visible). but the puff effect is only the organza, you just have to gather itall the way round. thet's why i used 3 meters of material on each layer, even though the measurement of this dress in waist is just 60 cm.
pretty! i like the ribbon tie idea! + I totally love pleats! and your look really great
great! gonna make one pair for summer soon!
thank you :)
can't wait for taffeta fabric to arrive to make another one!
its soooo cute! totally gonna use some of my old toy to pimp my steering wheel!
thanks for all your comments :) now it's more then 2 years since i've made it and I still have it and wear it sometimes!
amazing! i especially love the blending around stitches, it looks so real!
thanks :) yes I'll make a tutorial when I finish my exams :)
this is great, I think I'm gonna make top in the same way and use it as bikini :D
sound like fun! i gotta try this technique
and the dress reminds me of one dress I saw in some high fashion tv show where contestants had to make a body-flesh-muscles inspired clothing. well done!
fantastic! i really love it! can you please tell me if the material was elastic itself? and if that worked as a swimsuit. also, hope you had great holiday
OMG! I love you!!! I've been trying to make this top for 2 times and failed! :( Now I will follow your tutorial and, hopefully, this time it will work.
oh wow! it's perfect! however I don't think I'm good enough at these things to do that... please, post a tutorial next time you do such a lovely thing!
i finaly know what to do with some old tube I have in my materials!
Hi Shmee! I'm glad you liked my dress idea! I love the braided straps, too!
I absolutely LOVE this!!! such a great idea!
a must-make for me!
the photo didn't load, sorry
I love the look! I will have to prepare it for my party
This year, I'm dressing up as tribal voodoo shaman!
I've put together some of my african and south-american jewellery, added a custom skirt made of old skirt, some fur and feathers. I also made horns out of dog treats made of pig tails that look like bones and completed the look with warbonnet of feathers sticked to a headband
wow! nice to see you liked it!!! :)
you look so good in this!
great job! do a tut please!

OMG I declined your friend request by mistake!!! I'm so sorry I don't know what can I do now? can u send me one more?
Candice it's always like that when u look for it - before I got this idea of making clothes from men's tees my boyfriend was always showing me many at second hand, like band tees and stuff, now that I look for it it's all gone!!! ;)

I love things with ears!
