Description

This was inspired by TwiggyChic2’s Herve Leger tribute top, and worked a treat at holding in all the bumps I continually try to hide! I literally just used my dress form and draped the elastic as I went and used a zig-zag stitch to finish – simples!

Material Notes

Just thick elastic

      Thanks! I used about 9m of elastic which worked out at about £9 which is a whole lot cheaper than a Herve Leger!

      Thanks x And there is no fastening, I was planning to put a big, rugged zip in the back but time was running out and I wanted to wear it that night! So, getting it on involves a lot of wiggling and pulling it up over the hips or down over the head!
