knee length boob tube dress. top & skirt made separately and sewn together. top has elastic at the back (covered in material) which means i didn’t have to use a zip (whew!!). top part is lined with pink lining but skirt is not. i put a black ribbon around the joining so it can’t be seen. its my first dress so i’m very proud:)

Material Notes

black & cream spotty silk (more like a metallic silk – not sure what its called)





me & burdastyle for the inspiration:)

    So CUTE! This is exactly the dress I have been wanting. Can you post instructions for how you made your “boob tube”?

    I really like it! Did you use a pattern or no? I’d love to make one
