Birds bombshell

What are you most proud of? I'm very proud of the way this turned out--there is a lot of hand sewing, but it was worth it! I'd never made anything before that used boning or that had such a shaped bodice, and they really turned out nice! The lapped zipper and vented hem also turned out beautifully...I just need more reasons to wear this now!

You Can Make This

bluebirdsings made Birds bombshell with:

  • Joel Dewberry cotton quilting/garment weight
  • muslin for underlining
  • kona cotton for lining

Q&A with bluebirdsings

Beautiful. The dress really looks so nice on you. Love the fabric and shoes! You should give the Couture dress class a try with Susan since you aced this dress

mjoytan asked:
I've been eyeing this print for a long time. I love how it looks in the bombshell dress. Really lovely work!
bluebirdsings answered:
Thanks! I loved the pattern, but was a little worried about where the birds might end up : ) Luckily, it worked out that the pattern pieces didn't have seam allowances, because I could control what ended up where!
