Nice refashioning! I second what arianamaniacs said -- the zip ties work well and it's even sometimes possible to get extra sturdy ones if you're worried about them not wearing well.

Good job recycling and you got a very stylish bustier, too! Congratulations on your Think Pink! entry!

Great idea with the zip ties....I think I will try that with this top since it will receive limited wear anyway.

If boning is expensive, you can do channels instead and use those plastic zip pulls instead you get at the hardware store :)

Your resourcefulness is terrific. Thrift shops can provide the excellent and unusual. I love that you reused the button holes.

Beautiful fabric, what a great recycle job! Those shoulder pads were HUGE! Looks very nice!
