This black fabric inspired me to make this dress.. It is lightweight cotton with small percentage of elastin.. Great choice for fitted or open back dresses.. Of course, I wanted to make a dress with open back.. And I remembered that I haven’t tried to make a dress with cutouts.. That’s how I came with this design.. Two small triangle cutouts on sides, and deep V on the back of the bodice.. It was very easy to adjust the pattern #108 from Burda 03/2011.. I’ve used very successfully that pattern before ( here and here ) and I know that the fit is good.. I just made the V on the back to go to the waist, and I cut the triangles on the side.. I added the waistband to hold the bodice and the skirt together.. Full circle skirt was an obvious choice for me..
