My Liberty Bombshell dress

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I learnt sooo many new techniques completing this dress, so I think I'm proud of everything! I think I'm particularly proud of fitting it to fit my bust, this took a few attempts but now I really understand it! I've put up how I did it on my blog www.sleeksilhouette.com. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Persevere if you are struggling with the fit of the cups, as it so worth it as the dress is stunning when it's finished!

What you will need

  • Liberty Lawn Cotton
  • underlined with muslin (bodice) and silk organza (skirt)
  • spiral steel boning
  • seam binding
  • grosgrain ribbon for the waist stay and zipper guard.

Q&A with Katylissa

Scheri Manson asked:
This is an absolutely beautiful dress. Your fabric selection and your attention to couture details allow this dress to look beautiful on you. Congratulations. You must have a plan.....what's next?
Katylissa answered:
Thank you! That's so lovely to hear as I feel I'm just starting out. I'm actually trying to learn to draft my own patterns, but that might take a while to learn! In the meantime I've also signed up for Gretchen's Starlet Jacket course, I'm really looking forward to it!
