As promised, here's how I made this dress. Now I realize the fabric choice for this dress is a bit...flamboyant, but it's Hawaii. People wear much worse (imagine ill-fitting button-up shirts with multiple images of Santa in his island best). It's Hawaii, just go with it.
That's how I did it, explained the best way I know how: pictures.
