    pambox added the project Tessuti Cut Out Lace LBD
    Dsc01854_listing

    This dress was made as an entry for Tessuti’s cut out lace competition. I’d decided as soon as I saw the lace in store that I wanted to do as little as possible to it, and just let the fabric speak…

    Thank you! I love the back too, the only problem is that I only have one bra low enough to fit under it!
