one shoulder - NL 6912

 
The key to a great dress form is sometimes in the support that you build into it. This dress doesn't mention support but I think that I should keep defying gravity where possible especially if I want to wear the one shoulder version view C.
Initially I thought that lining the top pieces would work but then I wondered how easily would it be to buy a bra that suited this dress.
I'm currently hand sewing the bust insert pieces into the top lining, before I machine stitch them into place. My concern is about keeping the top fit as is while building in support but at 2am last night I couldn't sleep because I kept wondering 'what if'.
Years ago I made a wedding dress for a very slim colleague who needed the bust built in. We tried a few bust pieces but the best shape were shoulder pads. True. It worked really well and she was proud of her new shape.
More soon.

Have you considered wearing a strapless bra, or buying an adjustable bra with a strapless option. Wear it with one strap on and one off.

I will try that Gail.

Oh, I'm anxious to see this. I have this pattern but haven't made it up yet.

I have had my eye on this pattern for a while. I have also thought about adding in cups for more support as I am a busty gal.

Can't wait to see what you come up with.
