To gather your duct tape fabric, simply scrunch it with your fingers, then wrap a 1/2" strip of tape around the edges to hold it in place. Position it on another pattern piece as directed by the instructions, then secure with more tape.
To hem your duct tape fabric, remove a couple inches of backing from the edge and carefully fold the edges in.
Also, you may need to fold strips of tape around the top edges of the bodice to cover any raw edges. Get creative with you dress as you finish up.
You have the option of taping in a zipper, but you can also use stick-on velcro instead to close up the back.
