DRESS-UP TUTORIAL by Mandy

.

DRESSING UP
.

I wasn't planning on doing a tutorial on this dress when I created my LGS LO, so please excuse the marks where I've pulled it apart and put it back together again for photographing the steps! LOL!
.
.
.
.
STEP ONE
Spray with music with mist
.
.
STEP TWO Cut out the skirt shape
.
.
STEP THREE
Place creases in the skirt
.
.
STEP FOUR
Repeat steps but cut the second skirt a little smaller.
I've faded the blue mist as I went down the skirt from darker to lighter
.
.
STEP FIVE
Cut this shape for the bodice out of the blue misted paper,
add a little gauze at the top of the bodice, and some red fine cord as a halter neck strap by attaching at the back
.
.
STEP SIX Glue the bodice to the inside of both the skirts
.
.

STEP SEVEN
Tie some cord around the waist
.
.
STEP EIGHT
Add some fabric around the halter neck strap and tuck under the waist cord
.
.
STEP NINE
Add a little bit of gauze to look like an underskirt or petticoat effect
.
.

STEP TEN
Attach some trim to the waist and let fall down the skirt.
Add some flowers
.
