For this item, I combined men’s neckties ties
into a design that molds to the curves of a lady. The result is
very sturdy and rather heavy bustier-type top. This item is hand-stitched
and machine stitched and it zips up the back. Over 20 ties were
used - the fat parts of the ties wrap around the waist while the
skinny parts of the ties drape the belly, back and hips. I made
this for a sculpture class, circa 1996. It has been in a couple
art exhibits and a fashion show.
Measurements: Best fits about a
32 inch bust, C cup. Length is 30 inches from shoulder to tip
of dangling ties.
