A backless dress (#111) from the March 2013 issue of BurdaStyle. Backless is an entirely new territory for me since I don’t ever wear backless things, even with RTW clothing. But something about this pattern called to me and I just had to make it. I had some new fitting challenges that I’ve not quite worked out yet since I am really flat chested without a bra. But at least I’m more aware of my fit issues and will be better prepared for the next backless things I make.
I wrote more in my sewing journal here: http://cathywu.com/journal/treadling/2013/07/08/backless-burdastyle-32013-111-stash-busting-with-atakino/
