I made this dress during the “Sew Retro” course. I made the halter strap removable. I learned a ton during the course while making this dress – lapped zipper (which I love), thread tracing your seam lines, waist stay, padding, underlining, boning, and a million other tips. I definitely recommend the course.
This dress was intended to be worn at my boyfriend’s sister’s wedding, but I didn’t finish it in time. It was very hard for me to make, due to the complex construction and using a flow-y satin (and silk organza underlining for the skirt). But it was definitely an important stepping stone and I know next time will be much easier.
Pattern is Burda Magazine 5/2011 #122.
