If you're at all like me, you probably get a bit nervous when it comes time to wear a backless... anything. So when I wrote the pattern for the Criss Cross Sweater Vest, I was a bit worried if I'd ever actually wear it.
Solution - combine two backless things to make it a bit less backless... If you have a backless maxi dress like these from American Apparel, it has become the PERFECT opportunity to wear that awesome sweater vest you just made! Hoorah!
