Nashville, Tenne...






A project for my mini line for Local Honey , the bustier was my first try and turned out pretty well. I must say, when making something with this many seams, make sure to fit it over & over. It must be perfect! If you are off by 1/8 inch it makes a huge difference…
As for the skirt, it is an extra long pencil style skirt, yet with chiffon cutouts for a very flowy look. This was an experiment with the maxi style, and has turned out quite well. The main fabric is a cotton spandex blend, which is somewhat stretchy, but will definitely add a zipper next time.

    Thanks everyone! This time I actually did not use a pattern from the site, but draped and drafted a princess seam bodice as well as a very closely fitting skirt. Soon I hope to figure out how to transfer these to a digital version, and post as a pattern on here. Has anyone done that before? Is it difficult?

    Very visually interesting – especially the curved sheer panels on the skirt – looks great!
