India's Pleather Dress

I don't know what happened to these photos from my last post. Here is the missing dress sample.

This design features open end cutouts which were created by drawing a box on the wrong side of the fabric, then cuting a slash from corner to corner diagonally. The flaps were turned back and edge-stitched with nylon upholstery thread.

This view shows the exposed separating zipper in back. I love the way India looks in this rockin' dress.

The bodice was made much like a traditional strapless bodice except the points at the neckline were extended into longer points. Boning along the bodice keeps the bodice stable. India decided the safety pins would be a bit too much so they were left off.
