HELLO I MADE A FLOUNCY BUSTIER. I first made it about a year ago for a sample sale, but it was never quite right, so I thought I’d clean it up and restyle it a bit for a recent night out … AT THE CLUB.
I was a little concerned about my bustline and how much attention it was receiving, but also when in Rome, but also my eyes are up here, if you know what I mean.
It’s basically a remnant of pleated silk chiffon PAINSTAKINGLY gathered and sewn over a corsolette from an old sample bridal gown of mine. The original stretch net and hook and eye closure are exposed in back. I need to tack down that edge, apparently.
TASSELS, BECAUSE I CERTIFIABLY CANNOT HELP MYSELF THEY ARE TOO DELIGHTFUL.
I like the flounce traveling up the straps a bit. Edges are left raw, because I’M LAZY.
But also because it adds to the movement.
I’d really love to wear this over a long maxi dress or even a white t-shirt and jeans.
But for now I’m just concerned about all of the images I didn’t post that apparently my iPhone has filed under ‘brassiere.’ GOODBYE.
