Liverpool,, New ...
This bodice is reversible with map upholstery fabric on one side and black stripey texture on the other. I bound it with the same black upholstery fabric to my utter misery. This was made for a well known pirate captain on the Great Lakes.
Interior made of stiff canvas from Feminine Touch Fabrics, boning made from plastic duct ties from Home Depot. Exterior fabrics are upholstery grade obtained from JoAnn’s. I purchased a grommet table top machine from ebay.
I traced off the bodice that my friend had, then lengthened it and reshaped the bottom v. I then folded it in half and trued everything up.
