Take a piece of elastic. Fold fabric over elastic. Glue. Pull fabric so it gathers and creates pleats. Sew the dress closed, leaving a slit.

Step 4: Cape

Measure and cut hundreds and hundreds of gold feathers that perfectly match up to one another. The key is to cut out about .1 inches of negative space around each shape which leaves the sheer black fabric exposed. Glue once all pieces are cut.

Step 5: Create Jewelry

Using beads, needles, wire, and string create jewelry. Lots of tying, knots, and wrapping. I also glue gun knots and ties so that nothing catches on my skin or fabrics.

Step 6: Wear
