button back black dress

So this is the last of the coffee date dresses for the present. I wanted a plain one for work that i could wear with the shirts i've been making. I lowered the neckline again, to leave space for a shirt collar.
I bought a collection of invisible zips for making the dresses, only to realise that they are too short, hence the need for a low back. I had already cut the high back pattern pieces so decided to make a little window at the top, allowing me to drop the zip down further.
The top of the window is secured by a button it turned out ok in the end!! See? Mistakes drive creativity!!
