This is one of my favourite dresses I pattern cut for Schwab.
When I started working on it the fabric was not confirmed so we worked on the assumption that it was going to be a woven. However after the first toile that changed and Marios went with a stretch fabric.
The next best thing to do was to toile in the fabric that the final dress was going to be in. At the second toile stage we could see the dress taking shape. One more toile and Marios had the look he was after. The bodice has a lot of work and the hooks and lace up detail round the neckline create a detailed and sexy décolletage.
