Turquoise redo

I stumbled upon this dress in the bargain box at a thrift store. It has one shoulder strap missing, which I suppose is the reason it was in the box. I don’t normally like polyester or ruffles, but something with the color and how it’s cut got my attention.

I don’t like the remaining pearl spaghetti strap so I’ll take that away and do something else. Although I could  get the dress on, I couldn’t move in it, so I’ll have to losen it a little, luckily there’s plenty of fabric in the seams. We’ll see how it ends up

Not so invisble straps

Today I finished the bra with invisble straps I needed for a strapless evening gown.

Coming to think about it, I doubt I´ll use it the intended way, for obvious reasons

Luckily, I made it with detatchable straps, so it will serve as a halterneck bra for my next dance show. (with straps that are visible but hidden!)

For those interested in making their own bras, I recommend Bra makers supply for patterns and materials. I started sewing bras around 2006/2007 and haven´t bought one ready made since then. Takes a bit of practice, but they fit soo much better and it´s not that difficult.
