Little Black Dress with low back

Added Jan 10, 2012

Melbourne, Austr...






I made this LBD with all the features I love on a dress: lace, exposed zipper, pockets, low back.
I mixed and matched patterns and used a tutorial on BurdaStyle for the inseam pockets.
I made a modification on the back bodice to achieve the low back.

      Hi LaraGa! Sorry for the slow response, I havent been able to get on to the Burda website from my home computer for some reason! I used the bodice from the Vogue 8469 and made an alteration. I added a new photo to show what I did. For the skirt, I used the Simplicity 2117 pattern, but I ommited the pockets from the pattern and made inseam pockets instead. More details on my blog :)
