A two-toned gold vintage sweetheart dress it is. :)
The pillow case I started out with. I cut off the front of the pillow case since the back was just a plain tan fabric.
The sweetheart shape I cut out. I'm completely in love with sweetheart busts. It screams classic elegance.
I hemmed the raw edges.
Then I sewed a crease a little below the bust to give shape to the waist. I pinned the front and back of the dress to the mannequin to audit some loose fabric so I can sew them together.
The back of the dress is a coral colored pillow case with an invisible zipper on the side.
I couldn't pull my finished dress over my mannequin so I had to hang it up. The dress looks more flattering on and has more shape than this shows. The back is also a low sweetheart which adds more of the detail that I love. :)
Thee finished dress on! I wore my canvas ivory heels and white rhinestone embroidered earrings to keep the look a little simple. Then I added on a tan belt and my peach bubble necklace to complete the look.
