Long Beach, Cali...
This is my version of the Bombshell from the class with Gertie. Wow, what a challenge, but so much fun, and quite the learning experience!
I added an inch at the top of all the bodice pieces for a bit more modesty, you can hardly tell though, ha!
I want to make this again, but in a casual fabric, and maybe just the top. For now, I just need a couple simple projects before taking this on again :)
The dress made it’s debut at a wedding, with a short black blazer for a little warmth.

Emerald green silk shantung, twill tape, grosgrain ribbon for waist stay, cotton for lining, muslin for underlining bodice, hmmm, more I’m sure….
