This was going to be a thread where I did a step-by-step explanation, with photographs, of how I'm (trying) to make a Latin dress. This was to be the companion to my description of how to make a Standard dress that I wrote last year.
Unfortunately I've got a TON of sewing to do this month so I just got very far ahead and didn't take the time to photograph the intermediate steps so I could write about them later...I promise that the next time I make a Latin outfit I'll do the full write-up!

Wow! What a fantastic dress! Aside from the fact that I'm a little biased because purple is my favorite color , it's also a great design. Very sexy but still quite classy. I hope we'll get to see some action shots once it's in use!
I actually made a latin dress by interpolating your instructions for a standard gown with my ideas and with what I had seen done for me (by others) in the past.
The dress turned out pretty well (it's the one I was wearing at the Western Regional) and I couldn't have done it without your guidance!
P. S. I am looking forward very much to seeing this new documentation project.
Oooh, I love pics. Thanks for posting. This dress looks so elegant. I can see just about anyone looking good in it. I bet the skirt has nice movement and I like the black curves design on the purple fabric.
Thanks. The fabric was quite a find. I saw it online and bought 3 yards of it with no idea what I'd do with it. Then my friend saw it a couple of weeks ago in my fabric pile (it had been sitting there for at least a year) and all of a sudden the idea for the skirt came to her. And then I thought of how to do the rest, it's based on another outfit that I'm working on for her.
I'm so relieved this is done. I only have four more to finish :-) Thank god two of them are men's shirts, which go really fast. This one took me about 13 1/2 hours of work, spread out over 5 days.

The dress looks absolutely gorgeous!!!
Oh and as a silly, I have just found the fabric that I bought in the US last time. The dress that you have posted has given me an idea of how to use this fabric....

How is the latin dress coming on? I look forward to reading all about it. It's very kind of you to take the time to share it with us
I am so sorry everyone...I've been on such a tight schedule (5 costumes to make between when I first posted and July 24) that I just didn't take the time. I should have taken the pictures as I was going so I could write it up later, but I couldn't even take the time to find my digital camera. Oh, I know this is a lame excuse, especially since the dresses are coming out decenty for once. Sigh!!!
