Here for your viewing pleasure: a nifty top with a corset front that just would NOT do as-is!
|The picture above was me pinning a piece of black jersey from a dreadful miniskirt into place to make this one, joined top to a) eliminate the wrinkling of the front panels and b) hopefully minimize the layering I had to do with this top before|
|Another view. I think I didn't pull the left side down flat, so it looks like Addie is stylishly posing with a hip out, LOL. You can kinda see the little loops that hold the corset laces|
|The arms were WAY too tight, so I cut away a large chunk under each one, rolled it over, and seamed. You loose a little ruffle, but it's the ruffle right under your armpit, so who cares?!|
|I purchased some pink ribbon at the craft store, and used it to lace up the front. I tied a nice bow and tied the ends in knots, and dabbed a little craft glue on the knots to make sure everything holds...|
|Much cuter, much easier to wear, and MUCH more comfy. All the cuteness of a corset, with none of the lace-up work!|
And there ya have it! Another wardrobe save by Addie and Illy! :)
