Vintage Denim And Lace Camisole Bustier Vest

Originally, this was going to be a vest made from different pieces of vintage denim. But the patchwork additions took on a life of their own, and this is the result: a combination of hand-sewn vintage laces, recycled fabric (including silk, flannel and batik) and material from three different camisoles, with overall-style closures in front. Inside, it's completely lined by the pale blue camisole.

The size is Medium. It fits a 36" bust-line really well (that's the mannequin's size) and measures about 17" long down the center back. The straps are adjustable, and the interior is fully lined by the pale blue camisole the piece is based on.
