Project Cupid - Upcycled Corset

Project Description

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!

What you will need

  • -second hand cotton printed blazer
  • dupioni silk
  • vintage lace
  • gingham synthetic blend binding
