I love backless dresses, but I always get really annoyed when my bra is showing and on the other hand I don't feel good without it either. So today I decided to make one of my bras suitable for backless dresses/shirts.
It is my first time to make something like that, so I'll probably be wiser next time and do some things differently..
Things you'll need:
- An old bra
- a needle and some thread
- Scissors and a seam ripper
- Colourful ribbon, chain, lace, pearls or whatever you like! Or what goes well with your dress.
Here you can see, that I cut the bra so far that I had to sew straps back on. And as I already mentioned, it is not that necessary, you can leave the straps where they are and cut off only the very ends.
The new back piece is made out of chain and ribbon. Here are also some pliers for cutting the chain.
Finally I took the ribbons and sewed them on the chains.
Yay! It is ready!
This was just one idea I had, I'll definitely try this out with some lace or elastic band and pearls.
Have fun trying out your own ideas!
