short sleeve sheath open back dress

Tempted by this dress since I got the magazine and by some nice versions of it that I’ve seen on the web, I finally made it 2 days ago! It’s an easy and fun dress to make. I cut a size 36 for the top and graded to 38 for the bottom. The top is a bit loose on me I should have taken the sides in a bit but I find it OK anyway, just more confortable : )
As I find midi dresses not very flattering on me I cut at least 20 cm at the bottom. This dress is long!

Material Notes

Some jersey I had in my stash




Summer, Spring
