    1. Saira Barcelon you can use whatever dress you have that you like the fit of as a template 🤷🏽‍♀️

  55. I could’ve done this dress because it could’ve fit me nice but i have scoliosis

  56. Te la lacreaste

  59. Do you leave the pins In there?

  60. Are you for South Africa

  61. are we just gonna ignore the fact that she did a signature van buren “byeeeeee”? 🤣

    1. Yzabel Santillan byeeeee

  62. I just subscribed because your voice is so soothing

  63. What size was the shirt that you used??

    1. XXL

  66. Love it!!!

  67. Naw I’m way too lazy I’ma jus go to the store by the time u get all the material and sewing I would have paid for a dress and went to the club already

    1. Then why’d you click on a DIY video lololololol

  68. Please where do you get your soundtracks from. Thanks for the lessons.

  69. Your body is goals omg

  70. *too short*

  71. That’s super cute ❤️❤️

  72. what do you mean its on the inside? did you sew again after you cut the sides sorry for dumb question

    1. I’d already sewed the sides down before cutting off the excess fabric

  73. Sus Never Turned Around™

  74. 2:26 mad face with straps

  75. You and the dress are both very pretty.

    1. You’re so sweet, thank you ❤️❤️

  79. Brilliant idea but I’m a size16 uk so this wouldn’t work on my body.. thanks for the idea

    1. who cares what size r u ? sis if u wanna do it do it dont till urself it wouldnt work cuz am pretty sure u’d look BOMB .

  80. 😻😻😻

  81. Wow! I need to learn how to sew

  82. Thank u so much sister… Your beautiful creator

  83. If I already had a dress I wouldn’t make another dress that looks the same

    1. Samantha Harp some people just baffle me tbh 🤷🏽‍♀️

    2. But it’s not the same lol how did you miss that part lol.

  84. This is soooo cute 😩🙌

  85. I wanna do it so bad but Im worried about the chest part since it’s really shaggy and down

  86. Imma try this again tho

  87. Lol I ruined a skirt and a random black dress trying to do this 😂

    1. Omg, I’m so sorry! Hope it goes better when you try again ❤️

  88. I love this sm

  89. How did you cut off the excess fabric from the waist without holes being there? Maybe I’m missing something or you left a step out??

    1. Fashion Wizardry oh ok I thought you done it afterwards, thank you

    2. I’d already sewed the sides before cutting off the excess fabric

  90. How in t fawk

  91. *me searching for the big clip holding everything together*

  92. Do you have any videos showing how you use your sewing machine? I just got a machine and can’t wait to do a bunch of DIY looks 😫 hellllllllp

  101. I love your collarbones 😍

  102. Me: *_sees the thumbnail_*
    Also me: *_starts singing & dancing to CLC’s Black Dress_*

  103. I just can’t believe she couldn’t find this little black dress anywhere.

    1. I made this from a $6 T-shirt…tell me, where can I find a nice LBD for $6?
      Plus, I live in Kenya. We don’t have stores like F21, H&M & Zara here (stores I’ve been told stock this kind of dress) – when I say I couldn’t find this kind of dress, I was just speaking from *my* experience 🤷🏽‍♀️

  104. Now I just need the body for this dress.

    1. yellow underrated comment

    2. Girl please, we all girls can rock any type of dress differently !

    1. Thank you!❤️

  129. I only clicked because this dress looks exactly like a dress Mariah Carey wore before. Any lambs here?

    1. Yes! I believe that was the Vision’s of Love era #Lambily

    2. ariana tordjman oh yeah ik what your talking about, that’s an album cover

    3. @One Dollar Bleach i think that its was just a cover of some sort either for just a song or an album but shes wearing a similiar dress but its white try searching emotion album cover or song cover

    4. ariana tordjman which album cover? Because I was thinking about the my all music video

    5. it looks like the white dress on her album cover

  130. Wowwww this is bomb! – I was hoping she’d show how the back looked. Sometimes dresses have extra room/baggage at the lower back.

  131. Its soo cute

  132. 2:56 why does your straps look like they have something in mind

    1. Meme Targaryen hahahahahahah

    2. @Sey Baby the higher is eyebrows and the lower is mouth. Can you see it now?

  138. Sis… U just really did something

  139. Lol I think it’s your body making it look so good babe ☹️☹️☹️☹️I would look dumb

    1. Angie Mares by your profile pic I don’t think so

    2. @sooyoung 62kg isnt big girl. Or maybe it just depends on your height

    3. I would look obese rip💀😭 I’m like 62kg yikes

    2. Did you even take anything in from the video ?

  153. Wish you showed us the sewing part

    1. Abigail Ella yep I did

  167. Question?… do you just take it off like a normal dress like pull it over your head or will it rip?! Also I live for you and this diy! ❤️
