Note: Follow pattern with the following exceptions:

  1. Remove some of the skirt's fullness by taking 6" off both sides (pieces 8 and 9 from pattern). Repeat for lining.
  2. To create the crinkle overlay, cut 2 layers of skirt front and back (pieces 8 and 9) from ombre fabric.
  3. To create the crinkle overlay waistband, double the height of midriff pieces 6 and 7. Gather down to attach only in side seams over dress midriff pieces.
  4. To create floral embellishments, cut strips across the ombre fabric 1-1/2" wide. Cut strips into 1" sections. Pinch each piece in center to form loose flower and stitch to dress where desired. Bring needle to front of flower, add crystal to center, sew in place.
  5. Following manufacturer's directions, use Tulip Glam-It-Up cordless crystal and stud heat-setting tool to adhere additional crystals onto bodice.
  6. Sew beads onto midriff front as desired.
