This is not only the first halter neck dress I make, it is also the first I wear!
I have always been aware of a poor fit and lack of support in strapless dresses, but this project exceeded my expectations.
all credits to Katjusha’s creator, hats off, this is a great project and I am completely happy with the result.
The bodice is lined with soft cotton, while for the skirt I used stiff tulle.
I added cotton lace trimmings in light blue, stitched directly on to the tulle and on the front of the bodice.
I used pink ribbon from House of Fraser and a hand made flower.
