I made this dress to wear to the wedding of friends.
In making it, I’ve combined all sorts of things I’ve learned over the years about sewing, pattern making, lingerie, corsetry and formal dresses.
It has a strapless bodice with bra-style, underwired cups. The bodice is covered with draped and pleated fabric. The straight skirt has a knot and pleat design from the Pattern Magic book. And there’s a little open fronted bolero.
This dress may just be the most complicated thing I’ve made yet… And I’m quite proud of it.
