Description

This dress was such an honour to create for such a beautiful girl. Jessica is the daughter of my good friend Tina and she needed a dress for her leavers prom. I based the dress on a pattern from March 2013 issue of Burdastyle. I had to learn how to make a full bust adjustment and it took 4 attempts to get the perfect fit but I couldn’t be happier with the results. Made with a quality pink satin with rouched polkadot tulle overlay. There are 10 metres of tulle gathered into her tiny 27 inch waist. I love the 1950s vintage vibe it has about it. Please visit ooobop! for lots more gorgeous photos taken by my very talented fella!

Material Notes

satin, tulle, lining fabric, sew-in boning, invisible zip, hook and eye.

      Thanks Anne. I made a bridal purse using the same tulle ages ago. I knew then it would make something far more interesting! :-)

    Jessica really does look gorgeous in the beautiful dress you have made for her and her partner’s tie is a lovely touch to complete what a would say was a very special evening.
