Step 3

Mark holes and cut where on the top left shoulder you will attach the rope to (this saves you from having to randomly wrap the rope around body). Add about 3 feet of rope to the hole, making the top the center piece.

Step 4

Step 5

Next, on the right shoulder put a hole through the front to the back of the shirt to create a cold shoulder effect. Add another 3 feet of rope to wrap around.

Step 6

Finally, cut seaweed-like pieces of fabric from the green shirt and glue around dress. Pieces should be at least 6” long. Use as little or as many as you’d like to finish it.

When putting on the dress, wrap the rope around your waist, bust and hips. Give the shirt a little tug for the loose, sail-like effect. Add a comb to your hair and find your Prince!
