Sew Retro: Perfect Fit Bombshell Dress »
Type of item: Clothing
cotton, plastic boning, muslin for underlining, flat knit zipper, grosgrain ribbon, thread
What was your inspiration?
I made this to go to my friend's wedding!
What are you most proud of?
The fit! I never had a strapless dress that fit me. This one fits me pretty well!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I would definitely make a muslin at least for the bodice first. I used the smallest size pattern, but ended up taking in 6" all around bust and waist. Had I not made a muslin, it would have been a disaster.
I blog about the project here:
