Low back, green summer dress

Added May 5, 2011

by Laura Chirita

Timisoara, Romania






I bought this green printed silk at a trift store very cheap, and look what a cute dress I made out of it:)
The back of my manequin (Eva) is a bit wide, but on me it looks great, and I can’t wait for the summer to come!!!
What do you guys think about it?

    This is a beautiful dress!!!! How on earth did you make it! I made an account on this sight just so I could comment on this dress! You have mad skills! I’ve looking around for a certain kind of dress I want but it’s impossible to find ( I’m not a big fan of the dresses in style today) but here you are just up and made your own! I wish I could this. I would so pay you to make me a dress if I could!

      Pffffffff I’m blushing over here !!! And I bet that you could to this dress too! I just used a basic bodice pattern for the top, and I cut the back in a “U” shape, made some darts, I drafted a pattern for the sleeves, and the lower part it’s just gathered fabric! So I can’t wait to see your version! :)

    I love the colour, one of my favorites :) And the back cut is very interesting too, different than ordinary. Which is good :D
