As we gear up for the Spring 2009 collections, I thought a trip down memory lane, in the form of Stefano Pilati's Spring 2008 YSL Star Goddess Dress, was appropriate. I know you may be thinking "this is so last season," but anyone who knows me is aware I have a slight obsession with stars. Whether on garments, accessories, or skin, in the words of Depeche Mode, I just can't get enough.
What You'll Need:
White dress (I used a simple jersey, but silk is more akin to the real thing!)
Star template (http://elegantmusings.com/tutorials/startemplate.gif)
Glitter (gold, purple, green, and blue)
Begin by laying the dress on a flat surface. Decide the placement of the stars and trace the outline with a pencil. Next, fill in your star outlines with a smooth coat of fabric glue and shake the glitter on top. Let glue dry for about 20 minutes before shaking off the excess glitter.
Be sure to complete one star before moving onto the next as you don't want the glitter colors to mix. After you have glittered all the stars, allow the dress to dry over night.
The relaxed fit and colorful pattern of the dress make it versatile for styling... you'll have a look that's out of this world!
