I had wanted to make a simple red dress with buttons down the back. Even though I practiced making button holes for an entire week, I still managed to screw it up and could only salvage the dress by cutting out the whole back. So...this is what I came up with in the end. Not as practical as the dress I had hoped for, but it'll do.





p.s. The hem really isn't sewn crooked, it's just sitting weird on my body in the picture!

That's unfortunate about the button issues, I've yet to do them by myself so I commend you for trying  Smiley

You still ended up with an awesome dress though! It would have been really cute with buttons down the back, but it turned out very unique. I really like the front neckline/straps and the strap across the back. Nice job!

holy risque, batman!  i think i just felt a sympathy draft on my bum. 
 
if you want to cover your hinder a little more, maybe work a wide, tied sash into the design, so the tied bit falls over the lowest part of the back opening. 

it's very daring...great colour.

I like it too but also feel a draft there. You might add some great red lace to the lower back for a little more comfort. But I think it's a great save over a mistake. Some of our best creations come from mistakes!
