- Nov 19 6:30 AMThat could work, plus it has the added benefit of a real sleeve, long
enough to form a real basis for the dress you want to make.
Also, you may not be able to get away with just "boning the bodice" (you
*might*, with the addition of the ribbon waist belt, if the dress fits
closely and isn't too heavy) The foundation I was talking about is like
a separate inner bodice, sufficiently boned and with the ribbon waist
belt, attached to the dress along the top edge. If you have never made a
strapless dress, and if you find pattern instructions intelligible, you
might take a gander to your local store that carries Vogue patterns, and
read the instructions in a strapless dress pattern that has a
foundation. Like for instance
or any of a number of other dresses that have a boned foundation.
