Classic beauties

A lovely hommage to classic hollywood beauties... and a great version of a wonderfull song as well.

The 1950's halter dress is almost finished. This was the first time I had to sew a zipper in. I've always avoided those things, but it turned out great, especially considering it's my first one. A small alteration has to be made to the bodice of the dress for a better fit.

Mock-up model for the bodice, notice the gapping at the sides. I already made some alterations, like using a smaller size for the cups, and it looks better but the fit still isn't perfect.

A swatch of the fabric, I have used for the dress, it is red cotton with tiny white dots.
