Description

After seeing all of the lovely cut-out dresses, I decided to try it out for myself for Valentine’s day.

I used Simplicity 3016 for the dress and Simplicity 1655 for the bolero, both vintage patterns from the 50’s.

I used a combination of tutorials, the first I referenced was Vivat Vertias’ Heart Cut Out Dress Tutorial which gave me the general idea of how to do a cutout. But the main tutorial I used was from CationDesigns. (She made a super cute superman dress in her tutorial.) Ms. Cation Designs’ tutorial was for a bodice with a cutout that also includes a lining, which I found really helpful. I lined my valentine’s day dress with white batiste and somehow got my piping to behave on the heart cut out.

Material Notes

Cotton fabric for dress, self-covered piping, silk organza to stay the neckline and heart cutout.

    Beautiful dress! I adore heart cut outs, they are the best! I made one awhile ago but it turned out no where near as awesome as yours! Great pics too!
