    I love it…the back is AMAZING! I personally prefer anything fun and interesting on the back of a dress and the front to be plain. It’s almost like a little treasure…or something like that anyway…

      i agree! i got the same comment from my little sister. as a party dress, jersey is not dressy enough.. i will change it up when i make the same dress next!

    Oh my how adorable!!!!!!!!!!!! This dress looks so pretty! I think it was ElaineMay who made some dresses with this type of lyrical back. Yours looks like a very young, hip, version! Very Urban.

    Love the back. It looks like u can still wear a bra with it. The tiered skirt is nice too.
