Kiryat Bialik, I...
This is the outfit I made for my brother’s wedding. I wanted something with some old Hollywood charm, but not outspoken vintage.
Though it looks like a dress, it is actually made of 3 separate pieces: a bustier, a skirt and a petticoat. I figured this way I may get some more use of it, as separates, in the future.
The fabric is silk with lace and sequins applique.
Bustier: fully lined, closes at the back with 10 buttons and a loop-ribbon. Pattern is #129 from Burda 1/96.
Hand-sewing done on the button band and loops band, to join upper layer and lining.
The same buttons adorn the bow-tie on the skirt’s belt. I did the skirt without a pattern – simply gathered to the measure of my waist.
Petticoat: I used Sugardale’s tutorial – it was very clear and most helpful!
Silk – ~3 meters, Lining for bustier – ~0.5 meter, Tulle for petticoat – 1.5 meter, 15 buttons (1 cm diameter)- 10 for bustier and 5 for the bow-tie, 25cm loops band, 20 cm zipper for skirt, 2 hooks and eyes for skirt’s belt.
