Step 1: Knowing What Look You Want to Achieve
Work out a rough idea of the look you want to achieve. I'm going for a mermaid dress since they're so fascinating. And have an edge.
Step 2: Basic Structure Silhouette
This is an old male mannequin torso dummy which we'll be converting to a feminine silhouette.
Using tape I fastened the dummy onto a stool as a pedestal to balance the height to proportion in accordance with the mermaid dress form. Next we'll be sculpting the narrow bottom just before the mermaid portion using chicken mesh and pinned into place using pearl pins. For additional security tape it over and over in a tight spin.
Step 3: The Tapering Surround
Taking white chart paper of all and any sizes, Prepare cones and tape them. You'll need as many as you can make. It's never too much. Tape the cones together to form the desired shape.
Using the faux flower lines cover the structure to form the bodice.
Step 4: Decorating the Sweetheart Neckline
Using the fresh flowers create your own design at the bust. Use the pearl pins and foam tape to attach the pieces.
I filled the cones in swirly pattern by ferns, flowers and petals.
Attach all the faux pieces too. Create a Beautiful dress. Let your creativity take wings. Try out different patterns. And we're done.Have fun. I sure did :-)
Step 5: The Photoshoot
Isn't is mesmerizing
