Unexpectedly I arrived....

This is a strapless dress of my own design which I made from a lightweight designer surplus cotton.

I have lined the bodice for extra structure and it fits just perfect without having to keep pulling it up all the time :) (we all hate that:D) The skirt is also lined with a white cotton lawn. It has a 35cm zipper at the back and includes the sash belt.

This is simply too cute and is great to wear to a wedding, party or out somewhere where you want to say “HEY! Look at me arn’t I just simply gorgeous in this dress!”.


Bust: 81cm/32"
Waist: 71cm/28"
Hip: 94cm/37"
Hem (distance from Waistline to hem): 58cm/23"

I simply LOVE this dress!

Material Notes

Cotton, zipper, love

    Great dress! Wish I had the figure to wear strapless tops and dresses… Alas, my ‘Wonder Bra’ wonders “why?” ;oD
