I'm having trouble figuring out how to do this dress. The fabric is one thing - I'm considering using a see-through blue over white, but I'd like something that would be all one fabric if possible. Also, I need to make it flow like it does in the picture. If anyone has any ideas how I could make this costume, please tell me.

I can't see the photo, but by the description I'm thinking maybe you're talking abuout Chii from Tsubasa? For the skirt underneath, I would get something white and use fabric dye to make it fade from white to blue. To make it flow you just need lots of fabric, and using box pleats to gather the fabric at the top creates nice ruffles.

Tracing your link, I think you are trying to post this picture.

Laying organza over poplin would give it an airy feel, that's for sure. But alternatively, you can always opt for thicker chiffon. This costume has already been discussed elsewhere, so you might want to do a search on it. The bow is a real pain, though, You'll have to cut it on bias and lettuce-pleat it. Again, I am sure there was a tutorial in the other section-I will post the link up once I locate it.

It's a really cute costume-good luck on it!
