Description

A strapless, fitted denim dress, zippered up the back, with a sweetheart neckline. Comfortable enough to pair with flip flops, and easy enough to dress up with heels and great accessories.

Material Notes

Used a stretchy denim curtain bought at a thrift store. Easy to cut, sew, and presses well.

    Hi, LoVe this dress, beautifully done…just wondering, do you think it could be converted to be just a shirt? do you think it would be easy? Thank you for your input. xoxo uʻi

      Probably could – just cut the pieces shorter for a princess seam top – and probably even flare out the bottom of the pieces a 1/2 in or 1 in on either side of the new bottom seam, either straight lines for a flowy top, or keep the relative curves for a more formfitting one. good idea! i’ve been working on a good pattern for a sweetheart top like this one, but with a sheer tee that goes over it all, and connected. i’ll try to post pics of a dress like this i’ve been working on, but my own bodice pattern. love the idea for a top!

      Thanks!! It’s my first venture into actual tailoring after the dress is sewn. Every curvy line in every pattern usually has to be straightened for my boyish figure (lol) and without a form, it can get uncomfortable taking it off with pins, but this turned out better than I could have hoped for. So glad to see the good ratings and feedback! :)
