Hello There dress

Mornington, Aust...






I thought I would jump on the backless dress band wagon and make one for myself! Still not completely sure about the colors, but i suppose I’ll get used to them. I plan on make more of this dress because its so adorable. I used the Danielle dress pattern as a base for the bodice and the rest is rectangles. I took a while to get the back right, but finally got it right.

Material Notes

Quilting Cotton, Cotton Voile, Buttons, Zipper




Spring, Summer
Garment Type

    great fit! i like the combination of fabrics and i agree with ruffles gazebo, it’s like a frame.

    i love how it frames your tattoo, i’ve been wanting to make a dress like this, but what holds me back is can you were a bra with it ?

      Yes you can wear a bra with it, but a tricky one… the one i wear has removable straps that has two little tags were you can attach them along the back (so 4 in total) the outer ones don’t show up and also there’s a really long strap that goes around my waist that brings the back strap lower… :) just have to hunt for the right one

    its great! i love those colours, and personally i think they compliment your hair colour/tattoo quite well! (its almost like a picture frame around it!) enjoy your fabulous new dress…once i complete my long list of things to sew i might have to jump on that band wagon too!!!
