This is my version of Gerties bombshell dress made for the Xmas silly season. I loved this online course and highly recommend it. The only hiccup I had was I purchased this fabric quite some time ago and then when I cut the dress out I found a major colour flaw in it. When I went back to get some more it was all gone! So I had to work around it, eckk.
Silk dupion, cotton broadcloth for bodice lining, silk organza for skirt lining, grosgrain ribbon for waist stay and zipper closure, metal boning and boning casing, normal zipper
