DIY Low back Maxi Dress drafted from a Tank top

Ok so I posted an inspiration picture on my group from revolve clothing that I had to recreate!!!! My version of this dress came out very similar and I am happy with the turn out.  What do you think????
 
 
I got this fabric on red tag sale at JoAnn's this past week.
 
I used a tank top to draft the shape dress...  I pre measured the length of my fabric and used a triangle shape for the bottom half to the bottom of the fabric.
 
 
I cut out this shape for the front and the back by first cutting half of the shape, folding over and duplicating 
 
 
 
Next, (with the front piece only) I lowered the front neck line using my french curve, extending half, folding over and duplicated again. 
 
 
With the back piece I measure how deep I wanted my back exposed by using my measuring tape from my should down my back.  I determined this to be 16 inches.
 
 
I then cut the first half of the 16 inches (8 inches) and pivetted my measuring tape to use my french curve to finish the curve off.
 
 
 
 
Once completed, I folded the fabric over and duplicated the shape....
 
 
Next, I serged my neck and armholes....
 
 
 
 
 
Next I attached my dress at the shoulders, attached the side seams and hemmed the neck and armholes.... DONE!!!!!
 
I hope you like!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!
