Cushnie et Ochs -Inspired LBD with Asymmetrical Neckline

The iconic geometrical Cushnie et Ochs necklines have been tantalizing me for years and years. 2017 especially was pivotal. But life doensn't happen on the runway for all of us so I had to turn down the heat a little.. Now the only question is, should I add some veil??

Tutorials take a lot of time & effort to create, and I choose to make mine available for free. If you enjoy this guide, you can support me with a donation that feels right for you, here.

1.5 m medium stretch fabric  |  Invisible zipper  |  Pins  |  Scissors  |  Thread & Sewing machine  |  Not pictured: for straps I used tube ribbon

I. I cut the pieces for the top a bit big for my EU36/US4 size on purpose to be able to figure out the right fit later. Made it lined so two of each.
II. I first did just the other side seam..
.. Then tried it on and marked the right fit with pins.
III. Then I attached the straps (I always only attach on one side first, so I get can try to top on and get the exact right length).
IV. And pinned the lining and the main pieces together along neckline, sewing all though except for the spots where the straps will need to be attached. After sewing I turned right side out, tried on to confirm strap length, and closed the gap in the stitch.
Then I had this. That's it for the top.
V. From there I cut a skirt..
.. Which I attached to the right side of the top.
VI. And after attaching my invisible zipper to right side part of top + the skirt, I folded the lining along the edges and hand-sewed in place.
Feeling it.
