Sew Retro: Perfect Fit Bombshell Dress »
InstructionsInstead of using the skirt pattern from the Craftsy course, I opted for a simple gathered skirt. I think it dresses it down somewhat, and makes it a little flirtier.

Printed cotton from Snoozer Loser (I won it in a Burdastyle.com giveaway!) and cotton voile for the gathered skirt.
What was your inspiration?
The Bombshell dress pattern is a great way to use up scraps of your have fabrics that you just can't bear to toss. I had some small pieces left of this printed cotton, which I adore. The pattern pieces are all small, so I was able to cut the bodice even though I had barely any fabric on hand. I wanted something simpler and less dressy on the bottom half to balance out the super-fitted sexiness of the top, so I made a simple gathered skirt. I love the way it worked out.
What are you most proud of?
The fit of the bodice, and the way the print really shines.
