Introduction: Awesome Party Dress

About: My name is Leah I have many interest and I am hoping to find time to make more, and better instructibles, If you like my stuff make sure to leave a comment and a favorite!!! :) I think I may post some stag...

this dress is a good dress for any party that you or your children might be going to it's really simple if you know how to sew

Step 1: Making the Pattern

the first thing you do is tape a lot of paper together and trace the person who the dress is for leaving a little extra space around the top half of their body. Do the same thing with the other half of their body but make a dress shape. I recommend doing the top and bottom halves on different papers.

Next you cut out the pattern you have made. Than you put the skirt and top together to see how big it will be.

Step 2: Choosing Your Fabric

choose your fabric wisely so you don't regret what you choose

Step 3: Transferring Pattern to Fabric

Fold your fabric in half, Then lay the pattern on top. make lines with a sharpie,where the pattern is. cut the fabric on the lines. Than put the top and bottom together to see how they look.

Step 4: Sewing

first get out a sewing machine or if you're really good at hand sewing it will work. Remember to sew it inside-out once you're done sewing hand sew the top and bottom together.

Step 5: Love You're Work

you should be so proud you just made a dress!

    I would like to see a picture of the model (or mannequin) wearing te dress. It's an interesting way to trace the body to make the pattern.. I believe it is not often used so that's why i would like the see how the dress fits! (-:

    sorry,

    I made it pretty small I can't really fit in it. I had limited time to make it so I had to make a small version

    oh,

    and I learned to do the pattern that way from this Harry Potter halloween costume I made for halloween last year
