Construction Notes: This took me some time to figure out the order of construction. It’s similar in style to Tatiana’s Samba dress that I was able to use some of the same methods I did for that, but there are enough differences that I needed to think really hard about how best to put it together. Also, adding 18 inch fringe to it makes it much more patience-trying to construct. I found that I needed to take a break after applying each row of fringe (there are 7 in all). Finally, this beast is heavy! Thanks to the rayon fringe, it probably weighs about 6 lbs. And the fringe had 5 rows of chainstitching at the top. That added a fair a mount of bulk, so once the fringe was attached to the dress, I went back and removed 3 of the 5 rows. From about 8 yards of fringe. Likes/Dislikes: This was fun to make. There are some things I would have done differently if I had had more time, but I’m satisfied with how it turned out so far. Conclusion: Another fun, thought-challenging project. Coincidentally, today I got an email from a fellow who just released a series of DVD tutorials on making ballroom dance dresses. You can find out more about it at Ballroom Dance Fashions. NAYY, and I know nothing more about it or about him than that, but from what I can see, it looks like it may be worthwhile if you are going to make dance costumes. I’m hoping to talk to him later this week, so I’ll report back when I have more information. In the meantime, here are pictures of the dress on Mutt, my full-body mannequin: Oh, that’s right, I haven’t come out and actually said what it is, right? Sorry. Well you probably already figured it out, but the specifics are that “It” is a Latin competition dress with 24 inch fringe, and a heavily stoned center front panel. It’s for Stephanie, one of the teachers at the ballroom studio where DS the Younger dances. It’s really a lot of fun figuring these things out, but boy oh boy, wouldn’t it be nice to have instructions on how to make a fringed, fully lined Latin competition dress? I have searched but no, no instructions, and sorry – I’m afraid I won’t be the one to write the first ones. I’m just winging that mother.
