It depends on how backless you are talking. If you mean totally backless…. not without lots of double-stick tape.

@BrittniAllen: Can you show us a photo of your gown and perhaps another photo of one similar to how you would like for it to look?

… depends on the structure of the dress.

 

but do you just mean you want the back of the dress lower, so show more of your back?

You would need a TON of boning put in, so that it could stay up on its own. Even after all the boning, you’d need to tape yourself into the dress as well. It would also be very difficult or possibly impossible (lol) to alter a dress to be low-backed, backless, depending on the structure of the dress already.

… that doesn’t look possible….

 

You can maybe change it to a zipper… but you’d lose the detail of the beading or would have to pay a heavfty fee for more beading/ detail.

If you buy a size up, you should be able to alter it in some way to have a deep V back or something, if that’s what you’re going for.  It shouldn’t be hard to remove the corset, the hard part will be getting it to stay up and hold its structure without it.

@pinkfrog: great idea! I dont think it could be done with the current size she has on 😀

Wow, with that much beading and pleats? I don’t think it’s worth the trouble. And it would be a lot of trouble.

@bestbuddies: Yeah definitely not with that size- it fits her perfectly, clearly, but I think the seamstress would need the extra wiggle room a size up would give to be able to keep the structure of the dress.  It *might* be possible to even with that size, depending on how the dress is constructed, but I can’t even begin to tell from a pic.

You could have the modesty panel removed and leave the ribbon.  Then you’ll have the effect of backless, with some skin showing, but won’t lose the structure of the dress.
