Description

When we saw the satin bustier top from last week’s new set of lingerie patterns, we thought this would make the top of a gorgeous dress. So, we took the pattern for the Satin bustier top, added lining and a gathered skirt and here is the result! A classic evening dress.

Material Notes

Top: Cotton weave with embroidery. Width of fabric, 145cm (57 in), Length, 0.35 cm (1/2 yd) for all sizes.

Skirt: Silk jersey. Width of fabric, 122 cm (48 in) Length, 109 cm (43 in) or length that you want.

Invisible zipper for center back, approx. 42 cm (16 1/2 in) long.

    It looks very beautiful and simple. Did you use boning?

      Hi, Thank you.

      No, we didn’t use any boning. It is actually a easy dress to sew and the fit of the bustier is really nice.

      Best,

      Emmy
