Inspiration Board: Vintage Cocktail Bodice

Here's a rather OTT inspiration board thanks mostly to the Dolce & Gabbana crystal  bustier. The basis for the inspiration is this lovely versatile fitted (and boned) top pattern for cocktail or evening wear. The fabulous thing about this pattern is:

  • it has a number of variations to it ie. strapless, shoestring straps, train (unusual), gathered bust and a shoulder drape
  • it can be used to fit with any skirt options eg, full, pencil or feathered as in the board

Do you think this pattern is too over the top to be practical? Do you like the variations? Have you seen this kind of train on a bodice before?

PS Don't you love these shoes?
