Who said you couldn't be the Valentine?
I wont lie to you- you're going to spend several hours, cutting out cirlces- burning them and then sewing them into little flowers. But the overall effect is so worth it.

  • How to make a corseted top. Be My Valentine Bustier - Step 1
    Step 1

    To make your flowers cut a ton of little circles from different types of fabrics in the same color range.

    I averaged about 100 flowers with an average of 4 petals per flower so that would make about 400 circles you'll be cutting.

    After you've cut tons of circles (they don't have to be perfect- in fact the less perfect they are the better they look) Burn any raw edges that may fray.

    Next take your needle and thread and sew through the center of your petals to create your flower.

    To check on your progress pin your flowers to your bodice.

    After you've filled it up make at least 20 more because you'll find yourself with not nearly enough after you sew everything on otherwise.

    That's the hard long painful part! After that its super easy. If you're lazy- don't plan on ever washing it or wearing it more than once you could probably cheat and glue them on using a hot glue gun but if you want something more stable than get out your needle and thread.

    This time use a thread that matches the color of your bodice.

    The great thing about bustiers is that they are double layers. This will make it super easy to sew on without a mess on the back.

    Start by placing your needle on the top of your bodice and run it through the top layer only of your bodice.

    Step 10

    Make sure the entire time you are sewing on your flowers you are only sewing through the top layer of your bustier and you'll have a clean finish with no threads or knots in the back. This takes virturally no time at all compared to all the time you spent making flowers but in all you'll probably spend a good 5 + hours on this project. So worth it though right?
