This dress was made with 22 ties and one invisible zip.  The ties are complete and intact.  Getting those neckties to cup the breast and not stick out like wings was more like a sculpting challenge, but it turned out well in the end. the shoulder straps are plaited and tied behind the neck while a decorative blue glass stone setting was added at the bust point.  What do you think?

Working a sewing machine is harder to than driving a JCB. No, really.

Thanks everyone! The dress was sewn together using a ziz zag stitch (4.5, 0.9) just butting them toether and sewing from the wide end up.  For the ones the overlapped in the bust area I just did the same, sewing the edge down to the tie underneath.  And evilpixie?  I love the idea of a paisley one!! That would be beautiful!

I love the front, I think this is one of the most well executed tie projects I've seen in awhile! I do think it would look better with just one tie at the halter back, but maybe that's just me.
