I’m taking the Craftsy Sew Retro Perfect Bombshell Dress class, and it uses the Bustier Dress with Draped Detail. I’m really excited about making something so structured, but don’t think that the style of skirt on the dress would look right on me. So, I’m making the bodice into a structured top. That means that I’m adding about 4-inches to the length of the bodice so that I can wear it as a separate. I’m really looking forward to the project and being able to create something that will be custom made for me.
