"I Love Turquoise" Bustier Dress

Added May 14, 2012

by Martch

Hildesheim, Germany






I found this beautiful turquoise taffeta in Poland last year for a little more than $ 2 a meter! I instantly knew I had finally found the right fabric for this dress, that I have been eyeing since almost two years.
It was the first time I worked with boning tape, but it worked out just fine. There were some tricky parts, so I had to rip a couple of seams before I got them right, but I am pretty pleased with the end result.
I had a lot of fun finishing the seams with my new serger! It makes the garment look much more professional.
The pattern is a BurdaStyle Magazine pattern from March 2010.

Material Notes

taffeta, lining, zipper, boning tape

    It fits you perfectly and is very precisely done (all seams matches – I’m not good at that at all)! Congratulations! It’s a beautiful dress

    wow I am so impressed! This has turned out lovely, a perfect fit too! I am working on a strapless cocktail dress at the moment and seeing this project has really inspired me to keep trying to get it right. Thankyou!
