I've been wanting to buy this pattern, so now I have an excuse:
The back is a touch bare, but perhaps I could bring it up a little higher. Otherwise, it's "hello, long line backless, strapless bra!" A nice plus to this design is that it's designed for knits, which would make it easier to travel with.
There are other possibilities already in my stash too. Like View B of this Bellville Sassoon from 1995:
I've loved this pattern for a long time. However, I think I'm past the age where I can have that large of a bow on my butt. Maybe I could change it to a smaller bow, substitute some Dior roses, or eliminate it altogether.
Or View A of this Givenchy:
I love how the neckline is draped and twisted to create the effect of a bow. Although this is a 1997 pattern, I think it still looks current.
Or this Issey Miyake from 2003:
I'd eliminate the asymmetric godets on the front of the skirt, but otherwise leave it as is. It's more bohemian than the others, but since I'm the New Mexico relative I can probably get away with it. This one's another pattern for knits.
So, any thoughts?
