Satin dress with sheer overlay. Contrast satin waistband, straps and sash.
I tried a similar dress in a shop then ran out to buy a sketchpad and quickly drew it up. I created the bust piece myself and tweaked another dress pattern to create the skirt. I couldn’t find a matching zip so created the back with elastic from necessity. The sash was designed simply to pull it all in and create a perfect fit. I sewed bra pads in the bust at the last minute as i couldn’t find a suitable bra. My son squirted juice on the front as i was making the final touches so i had to wash and iron it – terrifying! All things considered, I’m very happy wth the result!
