30 yards of Tulle
2 feet of rope
1 yard of stretch jersey fabric (matching color of the tulle)
needle and thread
- Create a tube dress base for the costume. Here is a tutorial for how to make a 10 Minute Tube Dress.
- Put the tube dress on a dress form. I used a trash can because I don't have a dress form. It is important that you have the dress on a dress form before you start attaching the tulle. If you don't the thread use to connect the tulle to the dress can snap.
- Start tacking the tulle onto the dress using a needle and thread. There is really not rhyme or reason to how this step goes. You want it to look like organized chaos. I tacked the tulle down as I draped it over the dress. Make sure you cover the entire dress and the tulle poofs out in a loofah like manner!
- Hot glue the rope to the dress. I let my rope hang down by my side, but you can also use it as a halter top for the costume.
