This is a dress made of rayon. It is based from Contour Bust Dress top and the bottom is the Marie skirt. I saw some people did this hybrid, and I loved it immediately. It took so much alterations because the bust cup part was too large and the bust circumference was too small. The Marie skirt was HUGE. This seems to happen with these patterns I buy online here. I made the bias tape on the top of the dress out of the same fabric. This material was a dream to work with and I have been eyeing it for a while, but I waited for the sale at the store. I did not want to put straps on, but it would not stay up so I had to put them on.
