Love the open back dress from the March 2013 issue but because I have so much boobs I use the dress for inspiration and make a few modification to the original style.
I use the top of the dress and the sleeve and copy a bodice back from a blouse that I have. I use my very own flare skirt pattern that I have drafted and is now using it around the third time. I really don’t fancy gathered skirt as it tends to make me look very wide. I completely lined the look using taffeta because the fabric was very thin. I jazzed it up by using a berry metal zipper I had for quiet sometime now.
Really love how it came together nicely. What do you think of my modification?
