Can you tell us how you make them? Do you cut the petals with heated scissors?

Amulya, first you'll just have to cut circles of different sizes with regular scissors. And then you'll have to burn the edges on a candle - this way you can "model" them a bit - let the edges curve up more or adjust the size of the circle if necessary. Just be careful - some types of organza are very quick to melt. Oh, and I suggest doing it in a place with good ventilation - the smell of burning organza can't be good for your lungs.

That would be toxic I guess, better do it outside! Sounds like fun, I should try to make some too

Psst: Christina of Black Lotus Clothing taught me that flower technique. I haven't tied it yet . . . tempted now, from seeing Safran's work; but, Christina uses it a bit on her pieces!
Gorgeous flowers Safran!

Okay, needing inspiration here! I bought Gia's tiered skirt and harem pants, black with green, red, gold threads running through the fabric. I need to spice up my black stretch velvet 3/4 length sleeve top to go with it. I'd like to avoid trim around the bottom of the top; I have a black powernet bodysuit to wear with it and as I am shotwaisted (hah! such a good Freudian slip I'm going to leave it in though I mean SHORTwaisted) anyway, since I am shortwaisted I don't want to break up the line of my body above the hip band. Any good suggestions for decoration?

I'd decorate it at the top, like a nice embroidery like on that Hanan dress you posted in another thread

What a pretty skirt! I love the gold and blue! And yeah, way less bulky at the waist. Clever fix.

Thank you! I was planning to cut the darts, but the fabrics frays easily, and just ironing down the darts before sewing them flat at the waistline. Less work (no need to hem the new edges from the cutting), and still a good result.
