Name of website or photo Vogue bustier sundress
What materials did you use? Sundress resembling a bustier top with princess seams. No boning in this one altho boning is called for in the pattern. Learn to do boning by taking Gertie's bombshell dress class. I have yet to do that. I will soon and will post the dress made of black floral cotton broadcloth with black ribbon accents.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Buy a quality cotton gabardine or broadcloth so that the dress looks professional and stands up under lots of correcting. I have to add a new panel because I caught the back in the Serger and had to order more fabric from my source in LA. This is really lovely on and makes me look thinner than I am. Princess seams are great for those of use who don't have small waists and need some slimming. This was the perfect pattern for that. I do intend to make Gertie's bombshell this summer so watch for it in either this fabric or a black and highly colorful floral cotton broadcloth. It was supposed to be for quilting but since I retired from making blankets to make clothes, a lot of my expensive fabrics that were going to make quilts are now being used for joyful couture on etsy that opens this summer around August with ready-to-wear blouses, tops and dresses. NO pants!
