This is the first time I sewed a sweetheart neckline and I have to admit that it was easier than I imagined it to be. I really like how it came out because you can wear it strapless even when your bust measures only 33" it won’t come off =)
The top part is made of a t-shirt which I cut apart and I used beautiful lightweight black floral fabric for the skirt. It swings when you walk and is so comfortable to wear. I glued on some shiny pearls to the top, too.
