Making Kaylee’s Fluffy Pink Dress

When you normally wear grubby overalls, a fancy dress is a nice change of attire and Kaylee Frye’s dress from “Shindig” is one of the most memorable costumes from Firefly. I couldn’t imagine re-creating all those ruffles, but cosplayer Fire Lily put the entire gown together for $160. She used dupioni silk and lots of white sheer voile fabric – yes, she dyed all the pink and peach layers:

The second hard part was the skirt – although the costume was said to have used pre-made silk chiffon hoops, chiffon is entirely too flimsy a fabric to get the correct drape for the ruffles, in my opinion. I opted to use a white sheer voile fabric and dye the peach and pink layers. Each layer of ruffles is edged with rolled hems that I had to run through my sewing machine twice using a zig-zag stitch (omg took forever!). I then sewed each layer onto a plain cotton sheath skirt and attached it to the bodice.
