Eyelet bustier dress

Added Mar 10, 2014

Paris, France






I made this dress for some fancy work event. It’s a mash-up of two Burda patterns: the bustier is from Burdastyle 03/2011, and the skirt is from the Swing Dress (08/2012).
The eyelet fabric was white, and I dyed it to make it black. The dress is lined (I had to, because of the eyelet fabric!).

    Nice dress! I love the combo of the two patterns. Makes such a great little strapless dress and the fit on you is perfect!
