This is a two piece rockabilly inspired plus size dress. I basically took a basic evening wear pattern and just altered it a bit and used different material. It’s a black cotton/rayon blend, so it’s stretchable and very comfortable to wear. The top is a halter top and the skirt is a pencil style skirt. In the middle, I made a green bomb, by cutting out the shape of the bomb and sewed green see through mesh material behind it. This was inspired by this model who is a rollergirl and her team is called the Cherry Bombs.
