So I didnt use any pattern for this dress, [SECOND DRESS EVER MADE!] :) I used my mannequin to make the dress itself. Ive noticed that these dresses with the bows in the back are very popular, so I decided to embark on this project and make one for myself.

    You did a great job of recreating that style! It looks like something right out of Urban Outfitters!

      aw, thanks! I actually think im gonna add another bow somewhere in there, but in order to make the back you’d have to open up the back for some room for the bows. The bows are doubled strips of fabric with knots in the middle. So they’re actually really easy to make.

    Without a pattern, your dress looks very nice and fresh and flowery! I love the bows on the back!
