View Full Version : Ariel wedding gown help

12-31-2010, 03:17 PM

I was wondering if anyone disney cosplayers could help me out here on this one. I'm making Ariel's wedding gown but I;ve come stuck with the zig zag pattern at the bottom of her bodice. Now I;ve done the bodice, but i can't figure this bit out! Nothing I try seems to work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Here is a pic with the highlighted area that I'm finding troublesome!

When every head turns as you walk down that aisle, make sure your wedding dress delivers the goods.
Everyone wants to look amazing, stunning, drop-dead gorgeous, and most important feel comfortable and confident in your wedding gown. So before hitting the bridal boutiques, determine what your body type is and remember to shun all dress styles that work against it. Look at the shape and style of a gown first before getting hypnotized by all the sparkles.
If u have use a full face and neck, broad shoulders, a full chest, an undefined waist, a flat backside, shapely legs, and/or a large-framed upper body.
-These brides should look for gowns with cinched waists and fitted bodices for a slimming look if tall in height.
And the perfect veil for your perfect dress is.....
Cathedral - The most formal veil style, which extends beyond floor length and is often worn with a gown that has a cathedral train.

For the pattern of the petals? I'd say there's a pattern out there with it... otherwise I'd say go the way I did and use large sheets of paper(or actual sheets you can cut) to get the perfect shape you like. For the blue trim at the end I'd say get a bit of blue fabric that you'd like for it, cut the shape of the bottom and satin stitch it on, fold a little under the petals and normal sew that down.
Hope that helps!

what I would do is make the bottom skirt and trim the lines out w/ ribbon
