Color blocked portrait neck dress

Added May 15, 2014

by kat034

Frontignan, France






A mix between the strapless bustier dress (05/2014 #112) for the length (although I shortened it by 4 cm), and the princess seam dress (05/2014 #114) for the sleeves. I also added a slit at the back so that I could walk…
I did it with cotton pique in two different colors.
For once, besides color-blocking and shortening, I made no noteworthy alterations!

Material Notes

Black and red cotton pique




Spring, Summer
Garment Type

      Thank you! I got this combination in mind the minute I saw the dress (the pink version).

    I like very much the lines and the sleeves of this pattern. Your red-black version is really awesome.
