Snakeskin strapless dress

Added Apr 20, 2009

Budapest, Hungary






I wanted to make a pencil skirt so I made up a skirt block. I made a high waisted skirt but it looked kinda too business like. I had loads of leftover fabric though so I turned it into a dress. I used the bodice from Burda pattern #7829, changed it a little, made it strapless. I added boning to make sure it stays up. I was so happy – I didn’t know the word for boning in Hungarian but the girl in the shop understood what I was describing :) Success!
I have just changed the photos I had up for this creation – they showed too much of my hideously messy room!

Material Notes

Snakeskin print fabric – I don’t know what kinda fabric it is. It’s stretchy and quite thick.

    HOT! Nice fit, and you matched the fabric pattern of the top and bottom parts perfectly.

    awesome…. I always wonder is it difficult to sew bustier with boning?
