Brooklyn, New Yo...
I made this dress on a commission from my friend for his bride-to-be (unfortunately, it got lost in the mails, but that’s another story). It is made of a cotton/lycra satinette printed with those gorgeous, HUGE yellow roses. I found it at Paron Fabrics on 40th st. and fell in love.
The pattern is one of my own design. It has seams over the bust and into the armhole, a slightly raised waist, and a 3-piece A-line skirt.
I made a slip to go with the dress. The slip has horsehair in the hem to give it just a little bit of buoyancy. I also added tailor-tack bra-strap keepers to keep the bra, slip, and dress in place on the shoulder.
