I love anything with cut out details and backless features just cos I think they’re really cheeky and fun. This project’s been mulling over in my head for so long, after I saw this dress by Alice Mccall After Hours but I wanted to make it my own. So I started off with a really basic bodice pattern, added darts to front and back, freehanded some short sleeves and added a longer pleated skirt (which I’m not entirely happy with, I think the back pleats should go the other way but anyway!). The mock bodice I made just to test out my pattern I accidentally made the cut out gargantuan! The bodice is fully lined, I left the skirt a bit sheer, and it does up in the back with a button with a loop and a zip. I’m pretty happy with the finished product :)
