Description

The dress is made for a lady who is having her birthday party in the style of 1920s.
She loved the idea of a Charleston flapper dress, but could not find a backless one, which I gladly accepted as a challenge :)
The dress is boned and has a bodysuit lining (for shape definition and to stop the garment from sliding up or down), it has a zip fastener (right under the zip on the dress shell) and snap fasteners in the panty area.

It was the first time I ever made a garment bigger than size 10.

Material Notes

Dull satin. Quite a heavy fabric, withstands the force of pulling on ties, so the dress shape is not affected.

Difficulty

Advanced

    It’s gorgeous! And it looks like one of those dresses that are even more stunning on the body than the mannequin :) I love tassels!
