two piece dress

I made this dress in two pieces for a nice dinner my boyfriend took me out to for our second anniversary. The top is kind of a modified corset without boning and the bottom is just a simple skirt.

Material Notes

blue and cream patterned jersey-like material

    Thanks for the comments! Britlitgal – The skirt I just kind of eyeballed, but the top I modified from this website. The directions show how to draft a pattern for a corset that hits right under your bust (I added some more to the front to cover everything, since I didn’t plan on wearing a shirt under it.)

    Oh, Wyn – of course your daughter can pet my dog, if she ever comes across her :-)

    Rock on! You did a great job, and my daughter wants to know if she can pet your dog.
