For the bodice I used the upper part of the Khaki bustier pattern Burda 10/2013 size 36. I used a bit stretchy fabric and it caused the bodice is not that tight as I expected even though I usually have size 38 in burda patterns. The bodice is fully lined, I applied interfacing and boning. I also inserted old bra cups between the top fabric and the lining, so it´s very comfy to wear. The skirt is just a rectangle gathered on the top.
stretch cotton, polyester lining, boning, interfacing, polyester, double side metal zipper
