This is a dress that looks fabulous on all figures! The ruching and pleated sash at the front of the waist conceal a belly and give definition between your waist and hips. The waist to bust has triple darts sewn down to enhance your figure and give you the desirable hourglass shape. The fabric is 100% cotton shell of white with black polka dots and the dress in completely lined in natural silk-cotton (55% silk, 45% cotton). The dress has a little slit up the back to allow for a walking stride.
Your kit comes with the fabric and lining pre cut and pinned to your specif measurments, an invisible zipper, thread, easy to follow visual and written step by step instructions, and you are welcome to ask me for help at any time, including tutorial videos I can post on our youtube channel by request.

Don't forget I am a custom couture artist and I am happy to make your wildest dress dreams come true. I don't use patterns, so I can make anything you can think up. Every dress is hand cut by me to flatter your very specific measurements and shape. I use the highest quality natural (non-synthetic) fabrics, and to adorn your dresses are a huge selection of Swarovski crystal beads and rhinestones, freshwater (or saltwater) pearls, vintage sequins and vintage lace and crochet appliques!
All My dresses are available as dress kits, which are cut and pinned to your measurements and come with all the notions and directions necessary for you to sew together your very own dress! Its also much less expensive.
