Description

This dress is made of red cotton with rose print. The entire dress is lined with dark red satin. The bodice features a separate corselette, which I hand sew to the neckline. I made the pattern for this dress myself and I am very happy with the result, especially since it is the first time I have made a strapless dress. You can find similar patterns here on Burdastyle.

I also made a drawstring bag to go with the dress.

    Hello. I’ve been looking over the pattern for the dress that you based your design on, and have one question – How do you finish the top neckline of the dress? Is this sewn, or glued with a fabric adhesive? I’m not as experienced as a dress maker, and I wasn’t able to divine this detail from the instructions. Thanks very much for your time.

      I made this pattern myself so I do not know how the neckline is supposed to be done in your pattern instruction. But I made a corselette and a separate fully lined gown and hand-stitched the two together at the neckline. The corselette has hook and eye closure while the actual dress has an invisible zipper.

      Thank you so much! I actually went as Jessica Rabbit for Halloween this year. I just added a red wig and purple opera gloves. I also made a Roger Rabbit costume for my boyfriend.
