I was given army green lace and dark shantung, to design and make a top without lining. Since both fabric does not drape well, I decided on making this structured reversible wrap tank bustier. There are no buttons or zipper, just ties at 3 different points to secure the wrap so that it does not slip off or gape. The high front bodice gives it a more modest look.
Lace and shantung. Wovens. Interfacing.
