Project Cupid - Upcycled Corset

What was your inspiration? My partner saw a blazer while we were out looking at second hand clothing (I've put a picture of the original garment above) and immediately brought it to my attention. It wasn't something I would normally have noticed but I loved the print on it immediately! I decided to upcycle it into an underbust corset :) The inside is entirely lined with the blazer and all the panels in the front also use the blazer fabric except for the two dupioni ones. Hope you like it!
