I absolutely wanted make a cut out back dress !
I choose the Elisalex dress of By Hand London patterns. I had already made this dress and I love it !
I drew an opening in the lower back and added a few centimeters for the buttonhole and buttons.
I’ve changed my mind for the zip that I finally chose the same color as the dress. I also adjusted the back so it does not gape.
