Tuxedo Dress



This is my new favorite dress! Although my husband told me that the ruffle in the front "is not doing for him", I don't care:) I love this design!
This is a modification of the cut out back dress, and also the back bow dress I made a while ago. the back bow dress was made of jersey knit, but this stripe fabric is cotton without any stretch. So instead of making the back bow, I decided to open/close with a small covered button in same fabric. I also added a zipper in the back for closure.

I also added a piece of fabric that I made into a ruffle. I don't like excessive ruffles, but I like something small like this. I'm thinking of making this design in some pastel color fabrics, to make it kind of look like cup cakes for the Spring!

Hope everyone will have a fabulous weekend!

Fantastic! The open back balances out the sugary sweetness of the ruffle in the front. Really great dress.
