Ello there! So I have made this written tutorial, for the time being until I get the Vlog idea all situated and proper, so most likely it will be revisted perhaps in another form. This tutorial is made up into two main pieces, the top bodice section and the skirt part of the dress. You will want to measure yourself so that the fit is more adequate for your figure. The dress I made is Small and also you will probably want to find a slip for underneath the dress! Oh and please let me know if you encounter any issues regarding this tutorial, I will do my best to explain it! Please enjoy this tutorial, but please do not redistribute! :)
