Backless Coffee Date

Nixon, Texas, Un...






I used the coffee date pattern, and made it backless! I was nervous about it when I took it on but it came out quite good, my only struggle was figuring out how to close up the shoulder seams with the facing…also Ive never worked with this light of fabric before..i think its some kind of silk?? It was just laying around in my stash so I probably picked it up a while ago…which in my mind made the dress practically free because i dont even remember how much it cost! I only had to buy my zipper and some matching thread!

To make it backless I just traced new lines on the pattern of how I wanted it to look, and a made a full back facing.
