My bombsell dress in silk dupion

Added Dec 20, 2011

This is my version of Gerties bombshell dress made for the Xmas silly season. I loved this online course and highly recommend it. The only hiccup I had was I purchased this fabric quite some time ago and then when I cut the dress out I found a major colour flaw in it. When I went back to get some more it was all gone! So I had to work around it, eckk.

Material Notes

Silk dupion, cotton broadcloth for bodice lining, silk organza for skirt lining, grosgrain ribbon for waist stay and zipper closure, metal boning and boning casing, normal zipper




Garment Type
Evening Wear
Cotton, Organza, Silk

    perfect! I dore this patter, but I will be never able to make it, because of the shape of my bust (and the size). Shame. It is definitely tailored for you!

    I signed up for this class and have yet to get started with it. Your dress is lovely and is inspiring me to get going with the class. Thanks for sharing.
