How to Drape a Mermaid Dress | DIY Wedding Dress

In today’s tutorial I will be showing you how to drape a mermaid dress or trumpet style dress as well as how I calculate the skirt and godet for the side seams and center back, and how I transfer my draped pattern pieces to paper. I hope I was really clear in my explanations, this method can be used for any kind of skirt, mermaid/trumpet, a-line, ballgown. As long as you get the numbers correct possibilities are endless and best of all it saves on pattern paper.

I enjoy making wedding dresses and special occasion dresses, princess dresses for my 2 sweet toddler girls, and I recently dove into the realm of historical sewing (18th Century). I am a medically retired Army Veteran and I currently reside in a cozy town in North Carolina.
