Burlesque Beauty | Off The Shoulder Gown

Added Aug 22, 2011

By burdastyle

New York, New Yo...






Tinybow’s creations are pin-up girly fun and vintage inspired. This look reminds us of a Hitchcock film— there’s a bit of vamp, a bit of camp, and a ton of style. Her creation of this off-the-shoulder dress is amazing, not to mention the photos (modeled by her friend, a burlesque performer)! Made from fuchsia poly-satin (for stretch) this dress screams film siren.

Tinybows Says: “As soon as I saw the pattern for this dress I fell in love and knew I had to make it! This project was definitely a learning experience for me, but I challenged myself to make something out of my comfort zone and I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome. This is the perfect pin up girl dress! I was lucky enough to collaborate with the lovely lady of burlesque, Miss Rose, who was kind enough to help style and be the model for the shoot. If you want to capture some of that old Hollywood glamour, then I highly recommend you try this pattern out yourself!”

Note: This pattern calls for a one-way stretch fabric and is available in sizes 44, 46, 48, 50, 52. We have another off-the-shoulder dress pattern, though not exactly the same as this one, it’s available in sizes 36, 38, 40, 42, 44.

Material Notes

    Beautiful dress and pattern. I also love your pictures. I was sad when this pattern was not small enough for my size. It is fabulous.

    Does anyone know where the other off-the-shoulder dress pattern is? I’d like this in a blue or purple color.

    I think the gold gloves and matching shoes make the outfit. I just bought a Vogue pattern for gloves, which intrigue. I think they’d be a challenge to sew on a machine. I’ve done it by hand before…never on my Viking though.

    I love it! Great lines, love the pleats along the neckline, and the colour of the fabric is fabulous! Great job.

    All plus-size-ladies: there was a BUNCH of nice plus-size patterns (many dresses) in that issue of Burdastyle Magazine, they’re on here too, just search for 07/2011 and browse through the patterns. Being in the lower end of the small-size-range I was seriously jealous when I flicked through the magazine…

      I agree, this Burda issue made me jealous to plus size women too.

    such a shame that the lining is showing on most of the pics… looks like a nice dress.
