Leeds, United Ki...
Modern interpretation of 1920s flapper dress. SO modern that it is actually a corset dress; with a triangle piece overlapping the front, imitating straight silhouette of 1920s, and a cowl back – also an imitation.
Corset fastens with an open ended invisible zip (have to be honest it is not that invisible, but still looks neater than a normal open ended zip would) – yes, getting in and out is easy :)
An underskirt was a must, as flaps expose the whole leg (up to the low waist line).
The dress was meant to fit me like a glove, but the party was just a week after our holiday, we went all inclusive – I got fat, LOL.
All beads were stuck on by myself, there are around 2000 of them.
Self drafted pattern, as usual.
