My niece asked me to make her a dress for Christmas.
She sent me a photo of this dress: http://www.woodress.com/cocktail-dresses_en/red-cocktail-dresses_en/sexy-strapless-sweetheart-neckline-short-mini-skirt-pink-cocktail-party-dresses-style-a516_en which she has fallen in love with.
I want to make a two piece; a seperate skirt and a seperate corset top. I figured out how I want to make the top, but I’m stuck on the skirt. She likes the frills but I really don’t want to make hundreds of seams in hundreds of strips of sheer and slippery fabric. So I’m looking for other ideas that are less time and fabric consuming but has the same impact. I’ll try to talk her into a full circle skirt with a petticoat, but I expect her to want frills or something.
