So I’d been seeing all these open-back dresses all summer, the one that stood out the most was one from Urban Outfitters. I thought it would be great fun to have an open back dress, and I needed a project for this fabric. The problem was that I only had less than a meter of it! Instead I decided to make it a playsuit, which worked out perfectly.
I’ve wanted a playsuit all summer, something I can run around in without fear of exposing my undies :)
I used a pattern for the shorts, but extended it to make them high waisted. This is the first time I’ve ever made a pair of shorts! I think it turned out quire well. Also my first time making pleats, I’m such a beginner!
It has a zip in the back, and snaps on the top and it’s fully lined :)
I also posted about it on my blog :)
