beaded corset

when @marklucovsky brought home a few Steller t-shirts in large sizes, I decided to deconstruct one to fit me using the #alabamachanin beaded seam corset design.

This beaded corset is a fast and fun project! It is hand sewn with a straight stitch and accented with bugle and chop beads. Practice the stitches on scrap fabric first. Any graphic t-shirt will work with unique results.
