Beautiful back dresses (II): Just dance

The Just dance dress and tunic from Black Label Pattern Co is another one of those dresses that was on my to sew list with an amazing back detail. When I received this beautiful retro fabric from Juels I knew it just had to become this dress.

You can choose between 1, 2 or 3 layers for the skirt when sewing the dress. I found the first layer too short to show off this beautiful retro fabric so I opted for the 2 layers dress. The tunic has the options of 1 or 2 layers for the skirt. The fit of the top was spot one. However, for the next one I would make the bottom part of the back (the purple part on the back) less wide. It tends to gape a little bit with our girl and I like it to be closer to her back.

Again I chose for the rolled hem, I am on a roll with the rolled hem (…). I just love that you add some extra colour to a skirt and once you have done a rolled hem it is not difficult at all. I just dislike threading this thick thread through my overlocker. And look at that twirl factor! You can imagine our girl loves it!
