D.I.Y: Studded Bustier

What could possibly be the sexiest item of clothing a woman wears? I would say its her under garments. I especially admire the brassier, just because it comes so close to contact with the sexiest part of a woman's body. So that's why we invented the bustier! Throw a couple embellishments on a bra and your good to go!
My Inspiration

This is what your going to need...

  • Strapless Bra
  • Elastic Belt
  • Needle and Thread
  • Pins
  • Embellishments ( I like studs but I used push-pins)

First: Take the bra and elastic belt. Align them in the back so that the clips are at the center.

Second: Pin the elastic belt to the bra.

Third: Once you are happy with the way it looks, you can begin to sew them together. I decided to sew it by hand because the bra has a pretty lace lining that I did not want to ruin. But you can also do it with a sewing machine.
( Tip: if you decide to sew it by hand, I did a triple thread on the needle to re-enforce my sewing.)

Fourth: Now comes the fun part! Decorate as you wish but I decided to use push-pins. The push-pins are very flimsy so I used a seam ripper to poke the hole first and then slide them in.

Add as many as you like!
