I've been dreaming about making / wearing Kaylee's cupcake dress ever since I first saw 'Shindig'. Unfortunately, I'm not a very good sewer, so I'd never been able to make it from the start.
I came up with a workable idea a few years ago. I could buy a dress that has a similar shape and just add the ruffles and details. Finally, I have the base dress and will start buying fabric in the next couple of weeks.
I'd like it done for Dragon*Con, but I will have it done for the Browncoat Ball!
I'll post pictures as I get started.
