I made this Bustier in my drapeing class. The assignment was tomake a strapless Bustier. So i ran with it. I decided to use my table cloth for the outside fabric and a black cotton for the lining. Sandwiched in between them is a layer of Muslin with Boneing. Then i added gromets to the back and lacecd it up. The form that i use at school is luch bigger then the old one i have at home, so thats why it's alittle baggy. I hope you like it!!

Very nice use of a table cloth! I guess it was vinyl-ey? I like the shine of it a lot.

I believe that Oil Cloth is a laminated fabric. The back has a plain weave in what i assume is nylon, then has the shinny material fusedon top of it. Then the image is printed on. Thast what i'm guessing. And thank you very mcuh for your comment! : )

Very cool, I never would have though to use a table cloth for such a use, but it's very neat. And I think the fabric is very pretty, to boot. Cheesy

Cute, I like the front detail. The shape looks great. Very creative use of a tablecloth!
Constructive Criticism: Perhaps a few more eyelets would make it look more professional

I was thinking the same thing, but the package that i bought only had 12 gromets in it. And being the college student that I am i was pretty broke at the time and didnt feel like buying more. haha. Thank you for you comment!

Ahh, I see. The grommets/eyelets I use are hardware ones. They're smallish but very cheap and were an assortment of three colour - 500 for 3 ($6 ish). I expect hardware shops in America would have similar packets
