open back dress sewing tutorial


Salut! How are you all doing today? I hope great. I’m free today and I get to do more motifs for my new lace project. I’m still posting old sewing tutorials. I’m learning and preparing myself for  better projects and clearer pictures that I can share. I haven’t made anything new, just sharing old sewing project.



I bought this lace fabric as a trial fabric to see if I can cut it without making any cutting error and to see if I can sew it on my sewing machine, well, it worked  fine. Lace materials are difficult to work with, especially when you’re still learning how to sew. I made a plain design not to over cut the lace fabric. I didn’t use lining, but I cut it in a way that I can insert or sew a lining on the top or bottom when I want to.


I have done something like this from my previous post  except for the open back. The step by step tutorial is almost the same, but different in a way lol! Confused? I’m just trying to say that you can make your pattern for this dress from my old post. The simple sexy dress pattern will do great.
