Wilma Flintstone was the first and only thing that came to mind when I bought this cotton, so the resulting garment had to be equally as Bedrock. Simplicity 2250 by Cynthia Rowley has a bit of the same retro flare as Mrs. Flintstone.I loved the idea of keeping it strapless, but the top folds too easily from the gather in the center, even though it’s reinforced with two layers of interfacing. Eliminating that gather messes with the neckline, so I decided to make it a convertible(ish) halter.
It does really need more structure, so I think I’ll end up adding boning at the side seams.
