Gingham Bustier With Cherries On Top

I love this pattern, ever since I saw it, I knew I had to make one. I added red piping on top and red bias tape on the bottom. It screamed for cherries so I added them on bottom right. :)

Material Notes

vintage polycotton, black strap with hooks and eyes, red piping and red bias tape, cherry patch

    Gorgeous – great job! I had some yellow gingham that I wanted to make into a bustier too. But I am struggling on getting the pattern sized for my cups! (Well-not this pattern exactly but the cup part is very similar).

    Oh man, this is great. Really nice job there. Was using the hook & eye tape easy enough? I’ve never used it so I’m unsure about the application.

      Ne samo da djeluje, nego i je komplicirano, ali isplatilo se muke. Još sam dodatno zakomplicirala sa odabirom dezena i svim trakama, hehe. :D

    Fenomenalno! Crveni detalji su odlican kontrast spram crno belog karoa. A tek visnja… :)

      Thanks! No, I didn’t, this fabric is quite stiff and I wanted it to be comfortable. :)
