Here's the link to the tutorial I created for you guys! http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/contour-bust-dress-and-tute
So, lately I have been super productive! That is very unusual.... Anyway, I have made 2 dresses and some thongs to share. The 2 dresses are very similar 'cause I used the same pattern for them. I just created this contour bustline that is incredible! it's so supportive and flattering. Yet, each dress delivers such a different look just based on fabric choices! Man, I wish that I could not only keep them, but have places to wear them to! Then, the thongs are T-back style, which, for me anyway, are the only comfortable thong. I had a lot of fun making them--they are unbelievably quick to make! So onto the pictures!
Here's the first dress made from leopard print (I have an unusually avid love for animal prints!) and this super soft black twill. I think the lace straps give it such a dainty feel! (I love lace too!)
Here's the back. It dips quite low, and I loove it! The
Here's a close up of the bodice (and me looking not so yummy). It's painfully difficult to see the construction, which is sort of sad, because it's so intricate! Ah well...
The next dress. As said before, it uses the same tulip design. I actually scored the paisley at the thrift store, and I think it looks great with the satiny burgundy. Ah, I so wish the construction wasn't so hard to see! It looks just like your typical sweetheart bust, but really it hugs
your curves perfectly! I am so proud of it
A close-up of the whole dress. If you squint reaallly hard, you can see the details of the contoured bust!
And, finally the back. Boy, I LOVE lace!!!! If I could, I'd put it on everything! Oh wait.. I nearly do
Okay onto the thongs! These are such great uses of scrap/stash fabric!
Here's them all:
Then a close up for each:
These were made from a light-weight, almost burnout, gray knit. All of them use the same picot elastic edging
Then, a ribbed polka-dot on a cream background (I have boatloads of this. Thank god I finally found something to use it for! Of course, it would be something that hardly takes up any fabric at all...)
And then one from the same damask I used for my other panties. And if you look closely, the crotch piece for this one is a little surprise!
And a final picture of them all again! (I have way too much fun with my camera)
Haha, okay, thanks for spending time looking at all these pictures! I really, really love craftster in that I am able to share all my creations with others that are interested. It's so much fun making stuff, but even better when I can show it off somewhere!
