My mom gave me a bag of stuff to go to Goodwill a while back, but first I pulled the interesting fabrics from the bag. This was shirt she would wear to work outside. It was a Large; so there was lots of fabric. I didn't even use the back of the shirt.
I used a two liter pop bottle cut around the center for the boning. I haven't finished it yet because I was mostly testing the pattern my friend helped me make. While wearing an old t-shirt, we wrapped my torso in duct tape and then cut it off to form six pieces.

*scratches head*  I'm all for this idea, I have some thrift store and left behind at my work items that NEED to be corest-y.  I've got the duct tape pattern, yay you for being THAT freakin smart.  I'm confused about the 2 liter thing....I'm trying to picture it my wee tiny mind and coming up with...crickets...and someone singing in what 'might' be Elvish.  You cut it down the middle length-wise or width-wise?  Then what?  I'm thinking this might be the best idea I've seen EVER so I want to be sure that I've got it right!

Ditto the cries of 'that's innovative' for the bottle boning.

Also, I love that fabric. I have a bunch of shirts like this from my dad, maybe I'll try it!  Grin

Here you go! Enjoy. Its best to layer them three deep and have the curve go outward, the way a waist naturally does.
