Has anybody made a backless bra?? Or reconned a bra to have a pretty back so that you could wear it with backless shirts and dresses?Huh

Recently I've started thinking about that but I'm not too sure where to go from the idea. haha I was thinking first off get some second hand bras to try it on so I don't wreck mine....then once I figure it out then I'll use one that I like the fit of and change it.

I also don't have easy access to any sewing stores at the moment to get all the pieces either, but I think once I get ready to actually make a good one I'm going to go to Fabricland and look at what they all have to work with. I use a lot of thrift store things for my sewing so this would require a bit more work...

Anyways, any idea where to start???

I don't see why you couldn't start with a front-close bra and remove and replace the back with whatever you wanted.  I'd opt for making it non-stretchy, or something that stretches very, very little, so you don't lose support.  You'll just have to measure carefully to make sure the finished piece will fit you.  The piece you add, if you go for non-stretch, will need to be bigger than the piece you remove.

Full on backless bras tend to be really heavily structured, if you're anything over an A or small B, I probably wouldn't try it, unless you have experience with boning or something similar.
