I recently complete the sew-retro Bombshell dress course and this is the dress I made! It’s my first big project like this and I love it! It was a bit tricky to fit the bust as I have a huge bust compared to the pattern (the pattern is for a B cup, and I’m a G cup), but I think I did ok in the end. I made it for a spring wedding of a friend, so now I have some time to make some accessories!
I’ve recently started by new blog charting my venture into the world of sewing, it gives tips on this dress – especially the fitting round a larger bust! Sleek Silhouette
Liberty Lawn Cotton, underlined with muslin (bodice) and silk organza (skirt), spiral steel boning, seam binding, grosgrain ribbon for the waist stay and zipper guard.
Make something special and practical for your friends and family this holiday season!
