Cutout Back Dress with Ties

Added Nov 29, 2012

San Ramon, Calif...






I made this for my shop on Etsy and was offering them custom for a while, but I’m putting the business on hold for a while. Until we move or until Jerry Brown drops dead. j/k Anyway like everything I made for the shop it is reversible. It has two keyholes in the front and a cutout back. I gave this a full skirt, but I also drafted a pencil skirt version which I really love. I’ll have to post that next…

    Wow that is stunning! Favourite, favourite favourite! I’ve been thinking of reversible dresses for a while now and even bought some reversible zips, but they aren’t very pretty. Never thought of making such a feature of the fastenings. I don’t suppose you could tell me how you did the fastenings so that they work both ways? Hope your business picks up again! x

      Thanks! A lot of what I do is slip on type clothing. I’ve never bothered with reversible zippers, but I do use a lot of buttons and snaps.

      If you’re not on gov. assistance you are considered “wealthy” by the state. Try asking a small business owner in California how that works out! Actually no I don’t want to get political. But thank you for the nice comment.
