Glad you found us. Your prom dress plan sounds very intriguing. Are you thinking of a purchased bustier? That would be the easiest if you're a beginning sewer because they're quite involved. The skirt should be easy though, and you could attach it to the bustier if you like. However, many bustiers finish below the waist, and it would probably be more flattering to have the skirt begin at the bottom of the bustier. You could either just have it on elastic or a ribbon/band around your waist under the bustier or you could actually stitch it to the bottom or lower inside of the bustier. You may have noticed that tutus generally begin below the waist, which makes your waist look smaller since all the fullness isn't concentrated there.
