Step 1: Materials
6-sheets of large black plastic bags
3-5-white colored grocery, plastic bags
Large piece of paper, or a few newspapers
A measuring tape
1 pair of Scissors
A 24 or longer piece of string, shoe laces work
A piece of paper or notebook to sketch on
Step 2: Sketches, Planning
Step 3: Begining the White Top
Step 4: Patter
Step 5: Bottom and Back (black)
Step 6: Middle Strip
For this middle strip, you may use any type of colored plastic bag you may like. Just melt it together, i just a pink plastic bag.
Step 8: Skirt Creases/design
Step 9: Connecting the Bottom and Top
Step 10: Fixing the Top
Cut slits on the top, on the stuff you'd like removed. Next fold those pieces back and iron them. This is to take away any ruff looking areas and shape the top part of your dress.
Step 11: Decor
This step is unnecessary but i wanted to add something else to my dress. I found a duck that i liked on a plastic bag and cut it out. I then laid it right on top of the dress, on the white part, I then laid newspaper and ironed it right on.
Step 12: Touching Up
Next iron any sides that are uneven or look bad. Next better draw out the top, I decided to cut off the straps
Step 13: Fixing Middle Piece
Next, at the sides fold over the (pink) middle piece, to add creases. Just like you did with the black plastic for the front part of the dress.
Step 14: The Back
Make sure the dress is turned inside out. Flip it to the back, and measure halfway. Cut a slit straight down about one third of the way. Taking one of the cut pieces, fold it over twice. On both sides,as seen on picture. Since it is harder to iron the smaller pieces, a shoe box or a box of some sort may help, by putting it under the pieces of plastic.
Step 15: Tie
Using a razor or scissors cut slits on the back pieces that you just folded back. Make sure it is far enough from the edge or it will rip. Then string through your string, zigzagged.
Step 16: Finishing Steps
Iron the bottom, to rid an rugged edges and to even it out. At the pit area of the top, cut it so that it fits more comfortable.
Step 17: Done!!
And now you are done!!! Enjoy your new dress!!!
