Emma's version of the Open Back Dress 03/2013 #111

London, United K...






A dress for a friend. There were few adjustments made to the pattern to create a nicer fit. These included changing the dart into a princess seam and dividing the skirt into three parts (1 front, 2 back) to enable the addition of in-seam pockets. We also got rid of the sleeve caps. She was very pleased with the outcome.

Material Notes

Liberty cotton lawn fabric




Garment Type
