After seeing this collection by Pleasure Principle, I wanted something similar with out forking out the hundreds of dollars. I was going for the tank dress (it's black on the web site) with the drapy back and large knot, but as my projects usualy do, it ended up taking a diffrent turn. It ended up turning into more of a cape front drapey back thing. I really love how it turned out and I can't wait to wear it.
I started out by tracing another tank dress and tee that I had for the basic shape.
This is the pleating in the back of the drape
Front view before I knew i was turning into a capeish dress.
Finished project on my dress form
And on me, in the mirror, looking huge....lol It's really not as unflattering as it appears to be here, I look about twice my size in these photos.
