I made this dress a while back. I started making it without knowing what I wanted it to be, I just knew I wanted that draped fabric over the skirt creating that cowl effect. I ended up with this halter form fitting cocktail dress. It has a corset structure built in with boning and everything (The purpose for the bonig was just to give the dress that structure it needed so I opted for something light like rigiliene boning).
rigilene boning, synthetic fabric with metallic thread, satin for lining, Cotil for the corset inner construction, zipper.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
