Gold Coast, Aust...
Yet another dress made using the excellent contour bust pattern. I came across a dress online that had similar contrasting straps reaching the waist, and couldn’t resist making my own! I considered making them removable with buttons at the waist but decided against it as I could picture the straps constantly falling down and driving me nuts!
Also after a finished it I decided that the straps kind of look like suspenders, which I quite like the look of. I’m excited to wear this as the weather gets warmer over here in Australia.
