Summer Bustier

Added Apr 18, 2012

by madebymeg

San Francisco Ba...






After many trials and errors, the final version of this bustier is made in a vintage cotton print from the Alameda Antique Faire, and lined in the same fabric. I also inserted underwire, though it is a little too short for this design. The straps are made out of bias tape because I was too tired and had too little fabric. The back has a four button closure, which took a lot of experimentation to figure out. For my next version, I plan to give myself a little more breathing room (perhaps with a stretch section), but other than that it fits pretty much perfectly!

    That’s a lovely top. I read your blog post about it and wanted to thank you for the tips: vertical seams, and your method of sewing the bodice onto the cups. I would love to make one and your tips will definitely help. Thank you!
