I took a corset making class last semester, and our first task was to make a corset out of paper. I decided to make mine entirely out of coffee filters in different forms. The main part of the bodice is made from coffee-dyed filters that have been molded to the form with paper mache. The hip protrusions are cardboard and paper mache covered in unaltered filters, and the lace trim around the top is made entirely from coffee grounds.

Voila!
