Figure hugging pencil dress I made for myself as I have two wedding to go to this month and could find nothing in the shops!!!lol……Took me two days!

Changed the pattern to a shorter dress with no flare, and enough boning to sink a ship!

Material Notes

Outer cotton sateen
Lining china silk
Foundation Satin

    I just used the sprung steel bones that I use for the corsets, I buy it in the continous rolls so have plenty spare!
