NYE Dress

I've been wanting to experiment with some type of cutout dress. Originally I really wanted to make something like this....

But then I remembered that cap sleeves don't flatter me and neither would an elastic hem. Also I started seeing some really awesome cut-out dresses with back appeal that I liked better.

I love all of the above and am looking forward to making another dress with a cool back in the future. It really wasn't that hard. I used the same pattern top as I did for the overlay of the Christmas Date Dress. I cut out the back and used a straight skirt pattern for the bottom. I had the past week off work so I spent Tuesday and Wednesday working on the dress. I found this fabric in the holiday section and actually used the back side of the fabric.  I wanted a sparkly number for New Years Eve and I loved the silver! 

Happy New Year!!!
