HAH. I don't know about you, but this is how I spent MY Memorial Day weekend. It was dangerously fun.
I hate bra shopping more than most things for a number of reasons, so I've decided to start making my own. This is only the beginning. One of the magazines I got last month had a selection of lovely fancy bras in it, and that was sort of the last straw. I had to have one. Because I really need silk undergarments to function.
Believe it or not, I made it entierly from the waistband of an exceedingly unusual pair of silk pants I bought at Goodwill. The little detail shots are of the back closure and of the topstitching (yes, that's rick-rack you see there). And no, don't bother asking me to model it. I've already thought about that, and the answer is still no. I will say, however, that it achieves rather the same look as a corset, if you know what I mean. Uplifting, if you will. Hahah. I'ma gonna go make another one.
