Sew Retro: Perfect Fit Bombshell Dress »
Type of item: Clothing
Style: Retro / Vintage
What was your inspiration?
I wanted a 1940s-50s dress to wear for my cousins wedding and when I saw the course, Sew Retro-the perfect bombshell dresses, I knew it would be perfect! I added the collar on top and tapered the skirt a little. Though I wouldn't do this again as the material I used wasn't stretchy and sitting down was a little tight.
What are you most proud of?
I haven't sewed anything since I was a teenager so I'm very proud how this turned out. The bodice has steel boning in it so it really has structure.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This project takes a while. Especially if you haven't sewed anything for a while or are a new sewer. I have a newborn at home so it took me extra long to complete but I did it in the end and now I love it!
