I have always been drawn to the sexy silhouette a bustier will give but often disappointed in commercial patterns on the market. I finally came up with an easy flattering pattern and technique to achieve this. Strapless or with cute bra straps, circle skirt, short, long, so many dresses can be created from this foundation. This is my first dress with the pattern. It only took me about two hours to complete and about 1.5 yards of fabric. The fabric is a micro houndstooth of wool and lycra.
1.5 yards of fabric, 1.5 yards lining, invisible zipper, boning
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
