Description

I’ve always wanted to make a dress like this and I saw my opportunity when I saw this pattern. All I did was remove the straps and make the top into a heart form. I also made the sash into a mini corset by cutting it wider and attaching loops for closure. I have added two versions of how this dress could be worn (just by changing the mini corset) Note: it looks alot better if you make the mini corset smaller than your actual size so that the criss-cross is more visible.

Material Notes

I: 7/8 yds Silk Satin
II: 1 3/4 yds Chiffon
III: 1 7/8 yds Silk Satin

    This is amazing, you are truly talented. I wish I could make this. How do you make the corset? it’s much thicker/sturdier looking then just the normal sash. How do you make it strapless and with the heart neckline?
