Backless Bow Dress

Mandeville, Loui...






This was the first piece I’ve made for someone else. I did it for my friend, Madi, as she had been desperately looking for a backless dress, but could never find one that fit her body properly. I love the way it came out.

    Great job! It’s a very nice dress and the colour is wonderful! I could not find this Vogue pattern at their site. Is it possible to inform the pattern number? Thanks in advance!
