That is beautiful!

I have another project to add to my list, lol. Although, this one might have to be put close to the top of the list. I always have liked weaving ribbon.

It doesn't look like it would be too hard to make. My guess is that the woven bodice is sewn to a piece of plain pink fabric (the same as the skirt part of the dress). That way it will hold it's shape. Make sure to sew the ribbon straps in between the solid pink material and the woven bodice. The back part of the bodice is solid pink also (it looks like it might have some elastic strips sewn to it to gather it up). Layered tulle that has been trimmed with the same ribbon as the bodice was woven with. Solid pink skirt.

That might not be the exact way it was done, but that's how I would do it. I would come up with my own pattern to make it the length and size that I need.

Then I think I would have to weave me a coordinating Easter basket, lol. I've made the woven ribbon Easter basket before so I know it would match perfectly.

Thank you for posting this!!! I'm excited, I think this will be my youngest dd's Easter dress next year.

I don't find it hard at all. Have you ever made the loom potholders? It's like doing those.

For the bodice I would say that you would need to find you something like a picture frame to use like a loom. Just find a size a little bigger than you want the bodice to be. I would then take my ribbon and cut strips a little wider than the long side of the frame (cut enough strips in whatever pattern you choose to go from top to bottom). I would either tape or tack them to the side of the frame.

Next, cut strips a little longer than it measures from top to bottom (cut enough strips in whatever pattern you choose to go from one side to the other). Tack your first strip down at one corner and go under the first ribbon, then over the next ribbon. Continue the under, over pattern until you have woven your fist strip. Tack your second strip down right beside the first strip. This time you will go over the first ribbon, then under the next ribbon. You will continue this over, under pattern until you have woven your second strip. You will continue this pattern with the other strips until you have reached the other side. You will notice, you are doing the opposite on each row. If you went under it on the previous row, you will go over it on the current row and vice versa.

When you have finished weaving the rectangle I would place the pink material under the frame and pin each ribbon in place to the pink fabric before taking it off the frame. If you don't do that your ribbon might come unwoven some. Then you can run a hem around it and take out the pins.

I hope that makes sense. Let me know if you have any questions.

If you have LCOB's basket weave headband instructions, I bet you could use that method too (just on a larger scale).

Just wondering out loud here, could you maybe use some wonderunder or soemthing like that to bond the woven ribbon to the fabric for the bodice?
