Project Instructions

Step: 1

Cut out all pattern pieces for strapless, shirred midriff, and gathered skirt.

Step: 2

Place pieces on fabric according to pattern instructions and cut out.

Step: 3

Cover the front of each fabric piece in black tape except midriff; cover that in aqua tape. Trim excess tape.

Step: 4

Tape together the bodice pieces using 1-inch X 2-inch pieces of black tape. Tape both the inside and the outside.

Step: 5

Tape the skirt pieces together using long pieces of black.

Step: 6

Cover the midriff piece in aqua tape.

Step: 7

Use the circle stencil to cut out purple circles and place them in rows on the skirt.

Step: 8

Gather the skirt at the top and secure in place with black tape.

Step: 9

Tape the skirt on the insides of the midriff then add a long strip of aqua on the outside where the black and the purple polka dots meet; crinkle it a little bit as you go. Repeat this step only on the top bodice piece.

Step: 10

Crinkle the midriff piece so it’s only about half the length and tape it on the inside of the dress to secure the crinkles in place.

Step: 11

Tape of the back of the dress up to the midriff piece.

Step: 12

Use the grommet punch to punch a few grommets down either side of the dress.
