About My Project:

I am a custom corsetmaker who has recently begun experimenting with recycled and upcycled materials. For this project, I used 2.5 pairs of old, ripped-up, beyond-repair jeans, and cut them up into the fashion fabric and detailing on the corset. It also features a coin pocket and a buttoned belt, made from a waistband. The lining fabric is leftover from a previous sewing project, so all-in-all a lot of reuse was incorporated. I can't wait to build more custom creations in reused materials!
