Bustier Top and Matching Skirt

Added Jun 1, 2016

by Elina Belova

Riga, Latvia






The top and the skirt can be worn together or separately. The skirt has a shorter frontside and a longer backside. It falls nicely. I have worn the skirt with different tops many times but the combination of the matching top and the skirt feels like meant for a more special event. Although, the bustier turned to be very supportive and holds everything together fine.

For the bustier I placed bra cups underneath to hold the form. And for the pattern I drafted it myself after searching examples on the internet and choosing the one which looked the most rounded. The skirt is made of two half-circles.

    This is beautiful! Is it a self-drafted pattern?

      Now that I read your description more closely, I see that it is self-drafted. You did a great job in choosing the pattern. I’m obsessed with this project!

      Sorry for my later response. Yes. I self-drafted but to clarify, I can tell that I have small experience in drafting, so it was more like fitting and altering until the final result. Thank you for your kind words about my project. :)
