backless garden fairy dress

Added Jan 13, 2009

by Zyanya Walker

Sydney, Australia






comfy fun to wear dress, backless, breezy, beachy, summer fun!
made out of just one peice of fabric, and the halter tie is plaited and threaded through the top of the dress

didnt use a pattern but i got the idea from this site:
(scroll down to ‘halter gown’)

Material Notes

green cheesecloth? crepe? (i dont know what it’s called), thread

    This is a great dress. Sounds quick to make…might have to go get some fabric and have a go! I love the background fabric!
