Polka dots 50's style + petticoat

Added Sep 4, 2008

Enschede, Nether...






I love polka dots prints. I used a basic corset pattern and then make the pieces longer, nothing special. I’ve just added a white detail on the cleveage. The front and back bustier is wired. I like to combine this dress with red accents but also with bright yellow accesoires. I love them both.
The petticoat beneath, was so simple, I’ve just cut several tulle straps and attached them to a lining skirt.

Material Notes

1 mt. jersey (polka dot), 1.5 mts. tulle

    Stunning!!! you’re so clever to put boning in and to make the petticoat. It looks great with red or yellow accessories, what a fun dress!

    Gorgeous dress, as usual :). The petticoat is an outstanding detail. I love combining black & white combination with red details, but the yellow accessories are great as well.
