The Backless Armor
Added May 23, 2012
It’s been a while since I’ve added a project on Burdastyle, but that doesn’t mean that I haven’t been spending any time with my old Pfaff. Not by far! Still, now it’s about time I share some of the things I’ve put together the last couple of months, and hopefully get some feedback from you guys.
I start with this top I made for my birthday party back in March. I just love garments with open back, and this particular back is based on the back on one of my favorite dresses. I’ve called it The Backless Armor because of the sharp shape in the front, and the backless-part pretty much says it all.
The top is fully lined with interfacing in the lover part to get the peplum feeling that emphasize the waistline. The back is double layered. The inner layer is following the natural curve of the back, while the outer layer is draped. This – I feel – gives a nice contrast to the strict shape in the front. The black elastic belt is removable, but in the pictures used to make an impression of a more narrow waist. Don’t mind if it does!
My friend Ingrid P. Eide is – as usually – the one taking the pictures.
