I rarely wear strapless. It’s not that I don’t like strapless garment. It’s because I could hardly find a strapless top or dress that does not fall off my XXS body. So I decided to make my own strapless dress 🙂
I do not own the pattern. This is from Simplicity. However, I made some changes on centre back of the peplum pieces. The pattern instructions said to attach the invisible zipper to all layers on centre back including skirt layer, upper peplum layer, and lower peplum layer. I made small changes here by attaching zipper to skirt CB only; and I used snaps to close the peplums.
Here’s what I meant 🙂
So when I wear it, I zip up the zipper from dress bottom to top; after that I close the snaps on lower peplum and then upper peplum. It takes more time to wear but looks way nicer than having the peplums sucked into the zipper.
