Brooklyn, New Yo...
Made a few years ago and then worn as an assembled pirate costume.
I made it too big because I picked the size that matched my bust measurement.
I should have picked a size or two smaller so I could really cinch in my waist.
I used bias tape to cover the bones, and the bones eventually started to pop out at the top and bottom. I would recommend using cotton twill tape instead.
Grey and black paisley jacquard – cotton poly blend from joann’s, metal bones, metal busk, spaghetti shoe laces, pre-made bias tape (bad idea – should have used twill tape)
