Well I made this dress from a bra, as you can see.
It was really easy to do, so if anyone wants a tutorial please send me a pm.
Hope you like it, and show me your opinions!

That is quite nifty! You don't have to worry about your bra straps showing (hardy har har). Now if only I had a spare pretty bra...

Oh snap! This is awesome, now you don't need to wear a bra with your dress

I think this is a good idea, you will have a really good fitting dress top. But I think it would work better with the bra covered in a fabric so it does not look like a bra. The way it is looks a little unfinished, in my opinion. But I do think that working the dress around the bra base is super smart Smiley

I agree that the bra would probably look better covered but it is a wonderful idea!

Oh what a fantastic idea! Did you put in a zipper for the dress or something? I don't see how I would be able to get into it otherwise.

Thank you for all the lovely opinions!

I didn't put any fabric covering the bra because I wanted it to be visible. I saw a dress like this in a shop and I loved the idea, but I think that a bra covered by fabric would be a good idea of another dress. I'll try it and I'll post it when it's finished!
I didn't used a zipper or anything. I just let a few centimetres of fabric in the back and just closed the bra bottoms. I can upload a picture of it if you want to. Smiley

I kinda did the same thing after I lost a strap on a convert-able bra. except mine was a bit less wear-outable and more bedroom-wear.
I love how well you matched the fabrics. Great jobs

So cool!

I don't think I'd have the guts to wear that outside, but it would make and awesome nighty!
