Bustier Top

Added Aug 18, 2008

I found this wonderful pattern in a Burda issue from June ‘90 and didn’t expect it to turn out that well. I lenghtened the ruffles and still have to add the straps.
Unfortunatley the top is too tight below my bust and therefore I won’t be able to wear it. But I will most likely change this pattern to fit me and do it again.

Material Notes






My friend’s mom for giving me a stack of old magazines.

    I tried really hard to find this pattern and this was the closest i found:http://kochammameichlebzesmalcem.blogspot.com.au/2012/04/diy-gorset.html it IS in polish, but if you have google chrome you can translate the page, and the photos are really helpful. It is the closest i could find to this pattern and i just thought i’d help out! it was perfect, exactly what i wanted! Super easy, too. (dont forget to use a jacket zipper, i was tired and forgot, and could not get it on!!)

    Very pretty top and nicely sewn, too! I’m sorry it does not fit. Good luck on the next one!
