Sew Retro: Perfect Fit Bombshell Dress »
InstructionsI chose (a probably totally unsuitable ;-)) thin cotton for the fashion fabric, so underlined the skirt section as well as the bodice - and it worked out fine!
Type of item: Clothing
Style: Retro / Vintage, Classic, Cute
All cotton. Very thin printed cotton fashion fabric, underlined throughout with a midweight black cotton. Bodice is boned with 11 spiral steel bones.
What was your inspiration?
Gretchen Hirsch and her wonderful Craftsy sewing course!
What are you most proud of?
The boned bodice, it was the first time I had used spiral steel (or any type) of boning - now I want to make a corset!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
If you are following the course, watch all/some of the videos first, it helps you to know what you are doing and why, the course is great to watch, and there are hints and tips that will help you before you start. Take the course :-)
