FO: Cream jacquard floral dress

So.. after my last post, i completely removed the sweetheart neckline from my cream dress and modded it so that there wasn't a huge gaping hole between my actual bust, and my imaginary dream sized bust ;) hehe

Unfortunately, in the process, i actually underestimated what i *did* in fact have, and ended up making the dress a little too small up top and effectively squishing and flattening my already small upper body ..

Oh well, i can't be bothered making amendments at the moment, so I present to you an FO:

FO: Cream Jacquard Floral Dress



Pattern: My own. It's basically a strapless dress, with a bubble/gathered full skirt.

Notions: Thread, 30cm cream invisible zipper in the centre back.

Fabric: Some cream floral jacquard that I picked up on sale at Spotlight during their end of year sale. I got 2 metres, and i probably used up 1.7 of it. I have a small amount left which i might be able to make into a shoulder cape / small jacket of some sort.

Comments : I made this dress with the intention of wearing it to my brother's wedding. While i would still like to, im not sure how i feel with looking like a prepubescent teen with no chest.. I might be able to salvage the upper body to create more chest room.. but as is, it's a nice dress, but would've been nicer if it fit better!

oh wow, it's gorgeous!! If you worried about the chest area, you could always get a padded strapless bra, but honestly it looks great as it is!
