Superman Back Cutout Dress
Added Dec 3, 2011
Los Angeles, Cal...
I found this brightly colored Superman sheet at the thrift store and knew I had to make it into geeky dress. I wanted to make a back cutout to echo the Superman logo. I used McCall’s 5845 as the basis for my bodice, but I modified the neckline to be more like the ever-popular BurdaStyle 2/2011 magazine’s dress #101. I used a simple gathered rectangle for the skirt, but I added pockets.
