Crochet Lace Inset Back

Added Jan 26, 2016

by kisses

Kingston, Jamaica






The inspiration to this style comes from the Open Back Cocktail dress. I love the original style but unable to wear it because I have a lot of boobs and also cant find a backless bra at the present moment

However, I modified the style to suit my body figure. The skirt part was changed to a self drafted skirt with gathers at the sides, center front and center back.

The top of the dress as crochet lace inset at the back. Totally feel comfortable with the change and glad with the result

Material Notes

2 yds chiffon with silver dots





Summer, Winter
Garment Type
Chiffon, Lace/Sequins

      Thanks nrobson…I am glad you like the crochet addition because it can be used for persons who prefer to not reveal so much skin
