A dress bodice that looks good on EVERY BODY! You can add skirt length in mini, midi or maxi to design a dress for any formal event in your life.
We began with a basic silhouette I liked from classic 30’s Hollywood movies. I “frankensteined” a patten together from vintage patterns, one new pattern and then free-hand drafted the rest. Then, my mom and I made a truly couture dress, by lining the entire bodice in silk. We also added chiffon over the bodice to give my dress a Grace Kelly feel. You can add any design elements you want to make your dress make “red carpet impact.” The possibilities are endless!
