Sexy Cowl Back Dress

Added Nov 17, 2015

by kisses

Kingston, Jamaica






The inspiration of this dress comes from the “Grecian Cowl Dress” from burdaStyle magazine Dec 2013.

As usual I give it a little twist:

The cowl is at the back instead of the usual placement at the front

The armhole was adjusted because I wanted to shorten the sleeves and give it a gathered effect

The front of the dress is shorter while the back remains longer

I love the result and plan to make another one. It is very comfy, sexy and lady like.
