Denim Bustier with recycled materials

Added Sep 8, 2008

San Juan, Puerto...






A cute denim bustier, strapless, with boning on the inside. It has a trim made out of blue cotton fabric and those little soda can rings. It looks like a chain. Please, excuse the crappy images but I was unable to get a picture of my friend with the bustier on. :-(

Material Notes

denim, cotton, soda rings

    This is so good! I am trying to do a bustier now with Mccalls 3056 – and I am around a 36" bust – but this pattern is so HUGE on me ??? I just can’t figure out why. I don’t know anything at all about Fit or Alterations. I wonder if anyone could point me in the right direction? Should I just start taking in the seams, now, before I get further into the project?

    I would really just like to learn how to do patterns from measurements. Any good books I should read? I’m frustrated b/c I haven’t had much success in creating clothing that actually fits. Thanks so much for any advice! Your bustier is beautiful!!!

    The bustier is beautiful! I love the pattern. And using the can rings for the trim is such a great idea!

    Thank you so much! Well, my friend asked me to do something out of recycled materials, since she saw a local TV presenter with a newspaper dress… so she’s the one into green! Those rings should look lovely in macrame. She wanted me to fill out all of the bustier top with the rings, but I found that it took away from the seams, which look very cute… I did the pattern myself, using my measurements and adapting it later to my friend’s.

    Very nice, may I ask what pattern you used? You really are into the green aren’t you :) I have used the rings for macrame, but yours is a better idea. Cordially, Nehmah
