Carol Horn, this dress is spectacular.
The bodice is low cut yet substantial. Princess seaming should harness all my assets.
Can you see the top front? The center piece is all skinny, the rest of the bosom comes from a separate little part that wraps around to the back. Topstitching will provide extra support. I cut the short version.
I’ve had this red polyester with some sort of tulip print stamped on for ages, probably for as long as I’ve had the pattern. You know I got it on half price day, too, at the Markham thrift for more than two yards of 60″ wide stuff.
I decided to cut it tulip side down after much indecision.
Couldn’t wait to give this a shot. It cut and sewed so beautifully.
Zipper went right in, same for the facing. Only guess what? The damn thing fits everywhere but my bosom. And since it’s not a traditional princess fit – there’s that extra part that wraps around, I don’t even know how to fix it.
Lousy bosom’s wrecking all my fun anymore.
