Strapless Floral Maxi Dress

Added Nov 6, 2013

Melbourne, Austr...






A floral maxi dress, strapless bodice and floor length skirt.

Made using McCalls 6349 pattern with modifications below:
- No shoulder straps
- Lengthened skirt to 1 meter (floor length maxi)
- Took the centre back seam at the top by 4cm on each side! Big no-no, but it was too late for a proper adjustment
- Added handmade bust padding and bra cups to the bodice to give it for shape and structure

This pattern is a great project for a beginner as it is easy to construct (gotta love princess seams).
Very versatile as it can be made into a casual dress or a formal gown, just by using different fabrics.

I have more photos on my blog and also links to the tutorials I used to make the bust padding and bra cups.
