Strappy Pink Floral Cocktail Dress

Added Aug 31, 2008

by etcpantoufle

San Francisco, C...






This strappy pink dress was draped directly to my dressform without a pattern. It has a similar pleated skirt to the strapless brocade cocktail dress. It also has a similar top silhouette with the sweetheart neckline and plunge back, but the top consists of a kind of bandeau top within an underbust section and a thick empire waist/underbust band.

This dress has an invisible zip and hook & eye closure on the left side.

Material Notes

pink floral one-way-stretchy synthetic material, gutermann all purpose poly threat, invisible zipper.

    Ah, the pattern… I’ve never done a how-to, but I’ll try to start doing some soon. I don’t have patterns for 99% of my dresses, but I can show step by step instructions for those who have dressforms to drape their own :)

    This is so beautiful. Good work. Any chance I’d be able to get my hands on the pattern?

    Wow. How clever you are. I wish I knew how to do draping. I’d never really heard about it before I joined Burdastyle. Your dress is gorgeous.

    This dress is super cute! I love the way you did the bust, and the back is super feminine! Great work.
