I really like the low back long sleeve dresses at american apparel but I really don’t like the fabric they use. I decided to make a similar dress out of a nice pink jersey but I made it a bit looser and shortened the sleeves a bit. Im really happy with the way it came out considering Ive never made sleeves before (which is really hard without a pattern!)
Hope you like it! :)
