The dress is made for a lady who is having her birthday party in the style of 1920s.
She loved the idea of a Charleston flapper dress, but could not find a backless one, which I gladly accepted as a challenge :)
The dress is boned and has a bodysuit lining (for shape definition and to stop the garment from sliding up or down), it has a zip fastener (right under the zip on the dress shell) and snap fasteners in the panty area.
It was the first time I ever made a garment bigger than size 10.
Dull satin. Quite a heavy fabric, withstands the force of pulling on ties, so the dress shape is not affected.
