Leather bustier – BurdaStyle 01/2012 #124
Granted we’ve just come through the festive season, which is why I needed assistance getting myself into this bustier top, despite it being the correct size. However I think the problem was I didn’t use the more forgiving stretch suede or even leather, and instead I went for what was in my 70s era stash: a type of metallic foil patterned woven fabric, and I just had enough of it. Great for evening.
I also found some lovely red vintage satin lining for the inside. I won’t divulge the makeshift way that I installed the open-ended zip after trimming it to the correct length. Lots of boning was used in the panels, it reminded me of something my great grandmother would have come across. Hence I wouldn’t want to eat too much… or breathe for that matter,lol!
woven metallic foil type vintage 70s fabric with a red spiral & black velvet pattern – possibly polyester, red vintage satin lining, black open-ended zip for left side, iron-on interfacing tape, sew-in woven boning, fabric glue.
