DIY backless bra

Do you have a Backless dress and don't know what bra to where with out it showing?? Here is a simple DIY project for you.

What you will need is a old bra, pins and needles, thread, scissors, and fabric. 

 Step one: Cut off the hook part of the bra. If you want you can just buy the hooks and sew them on.

 Step two: cut the fabric, it must be quite long (you can cut it shorter as you go along). I put the hook piece next to it to show me the width of it. My cutting  skills suck so it isn't very straight.

 Step three: I pinned it to a bra of mine to get the length you can see the longer piece hanging, I cut that off. If you want you can also fold it double but you will need to sew it with a machine then.

Step four: fold the cut piece of fabric over then pin on the hook part and sew it on. You can use the sewing machine it will make it look nicer and is faster but if you don't have one the hand works just as well. If you don't know how to sew click HERE  hope that sight helps you

When that's done this is how it should look

Step five: if it's a little loose feel free to make it tighter. I sewed mine like this, I marked how much I wanted to make it smaller and then folded it like in the pic and lastly I sewed it...
