So I used part of a pattern that was for a halloween costume for the corset part. And I used remnant scraps from some curtains I shortened for a friend.
This is the curtain material. A nice burgundy. And I did a lining in silver lining material.
View of it mostly finished

This is a view once the finishing silver trim was added

I'm just another stitch in time...

I love it when someone else can see something new out of the old. I do this myself. I buy clothes in bulk and repurpose them. Great job! Well done!
