Strapless bustier dress (129, 3/2016)

Spring is coming.

I made this dress in March and was wearing it throughout the summer. It is very flattering and is perfect for weddings and baby showers. Here is a link to the pattern I used. My version was all about a flower print and the whole project was inspired by the Duchess of Cambridge.


Fabric – 1.5 m (width – 150 cm) of synthetic, rather heavy but softly draping fabric.

The top of the dress is corset like and the key is to use very stiff interfacing

After the top was done, I tried old and true ‘rectangle clinched at the waist’ kind of skirt but it did not work well. I had a lot of fabric and after stitching it to the top, it did not look good… I left this project for several weeks, and then June issue of Burda Style came out and the skirt for a halter dress was perfect!

The final result.

Sew it gorgeous!
