Behind the Backless Shirt

If I were you, I'd be wondering why this blog is called Backless Shirt when it's full of crafts and sewing.  

"What, you want me to name someone? You want like a name? Oh, God, the pressure of a name..."
-Kit De Luca, Pretty Woman

Yes, I donned a backless shirt circa 1998.  (I can feel you judging me!).  Don't be hasty!  Put away your jump-to-conclusions mat.  I have a perfectly legitimate excuse for (half) clothing was spring break!   That's it.  That's all I got.  And you should consider yourselves lucky that I haven't unearthed a photo of me in said shirt.  

I haven't been able to shake the it has become sort of an ongoing joke.  A friend of mine and I came up with an amazing money-making idea:  pajama slacks.  We came up with it after laughing hysterically after you tubing the Pajama Jeans infomercials.  Anyway, long story bad idea deserves another, so the name of our fictitious pajama slacks company was Backless Shirt Enterprises, after my bad decision(s) circa 1998.

So, when I needed a name for my blog...yep, you guessed it...the rest is history!

Meet the recovering backless shirt-wearer behind the madness!  I find it really difficult to accurately describe myself.
