Low Back Party Dress

Nixon, Texas, Un...






I bought this fabric not knowing what in the world i was going to use it for, but it just caught my eye. I think it may be a printed sateen. Then I saw this project and knew it was perfect!

i too had some problems with the fit. I made the pattern in the smallest size and still had to take in all the darts in the bodice (which i think may be because of my insignificant bust area ;)

After alterations, it fit perfectly!!! I used this in my portfolio when applying for school, and recently wore it to a friends wedding…I got sooo many compliments!!

I love the idea of having a chic, classy fit in a really fun print!

Material Notes

    How did taking in the darts in the bust area work for you. I have such a hard time doing that. (I too am lacking in that department.)

      It was tricky, and I was pretty unsure about doing it myself, but once you start tackling it, it’s not as difficult or time-consuming as you would think
