It’s rough around the edges because I didn’t sew it; but I had some time on my hands so I pinnned up some pieces of cloth on my mannequin as an experiment to see how easy it would be to duplicate the style of the Tom Ford dress Miley Cyrus wore to the amFar AIDS research charity gala last night.
I was thinking of ideas for a post about making a last minute Halloween costume and this came to mind. I wouldn’t actually wear this myself. But it seemed like it would be easy enough to do. And minus the fact that I didn’t sew it to make it look neat and tidy, I’d say it was as easy to put together as I thought it might be.
If you would be so daring to go out wearing a dress that shows as much skin as displayed, all you need for this dress is a long black narrow skirt and 4 black bands for the straps. Miley’s dress actually has sleeves and all that but the fabric is so sheer it’s completely pointless and is probably more a nuisance than anything. So you wouldn’t need to worry about the sheer fabric part of the dress.
Making the dress costume
All you need to do is pin two of the 3 long straps like suspenders on the skirt at the position where they will cover your areola and nipple. Then take thethird strap and bring it from behind your neck to the front and make a criss-cross. Run one end of the criss-crossed strap under the left suspender band and run the other under the right suspender band. Pull them down over the sides of your breasts and fasten each end to the applicable suspender band with pins. Take the 4th shorter band and cinch your waist with it, fastening it in the back with a pin. Try to get it done as neatly as possible. Oh and you probably want to make sure however you put the dress together that you have a way to get it on your body once you’re done. I haven’t tried it but I have a feeling you can put this dress together directly on your body. Just make sure you use safety pins instead of stick pins.
In 2012, Avenue Sixty was established under the name My Fashion Wants, and its original website was located at myfashionwants.com. The blog began as a fashion magazine-style platform with aspirations of becoming one of the leading fashion blogs on the internet. However, the founder's ambition did not come to fruition, and as a result, she transformed avenuesixty.com into her own personal diary/journal/newsletter-magazine. This platform serves as a means for her to live out her modeling dreams, document her various creative endeavors, and remain actively engaged in her passion for writing, personal growth, health, wellness, and enlightenment. Contributions from other writers are also welcome, and as a result, the website features posts and articles from contributing writers on various topics within the broader lifestyle category.
