Finally: The Cut-Out Bustline

Added Jul 7, 2013

Kingston, Jamaica






I had admired and wanted to do the cut-out bustline for quite a while now. Was very hesitant to give it a try because I have so much boobs and also the right fabric hasn’t presented itself yet. 2 weeks ago I found the fabric and the colour is beautiful so I finally mustered up the courage and here it is:

I modified it slightly instead of a full skirt I did a flared skirt instead my very own pattern that I love so dearly. Put in an invisible zipper and completely lined it and add pockets for functionality.

The construction was not too difficult but it requires patience to get the fit right. I am extremely pleased with the overall look :-)

    I love this pattern but I was wondering how to take on or bear such a neckline with a generous bust. Here I am heartened. it is extremely feminine, bravo :-) (Sorry for my english and thanks google translation :-) )

    Purple silk makes you shining:)) I like the changed skirt, it looks winsome instead of the gathering. I certainly like it, probably I’d do it a little longer but you shouldn’t hide your nice legs, of course:)) Actually all your modifications are nice and really functional.
