Cut out all pattern pieces for strapless, shirred midriff, and gathered skirt.
Place pieces on fabric according to pattern instructions and cut out.
Cover the front of each fabric piece in black tape except midriff; cover that in aqua tape. Trim excess tape.
Tape together the bodice pieces using 1-inch X 2-inch pieces of black tape. Tape both the inside and the outside.
Tape the skirt pieces together using long pieces of black.
Cover the midriff piece in aqua tape.
Use the circle stencil to cut out purple circles and place them in rows on the skirt.
Gather the skirt at the top and secure in place with black tape.
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.
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.
Tape of the back of the dress up to the midriff piece.
Use the grommet punch to punch a few grommets down either side of the dress.
Use photo as a guide and follow manufacturer’s instructions for all products used.
