A FASHION guru has revealed a quick trick to upcycling a cheap dress into a stunning corset.
TikToker @fybmstudios transformed a simple thrift store dress into a trendy top and matching mini skirt.
The seamstress first showed off a turquoise gown in her video that has earned nearly 1.5million views.
She said her plan was to use the knee-length dress to make a matching set.
The TikToker was inspired by a trendy corset top that has a plunging neckline and thick straps.
First, she cut out the zipper in the dress so she could reuse it for her mini skirt.
Then, she took a large portion of fabric from the front to create her corset.
“I’ve gone ahead and cut out all my pattern pieces, and now I’m going to sew all the sides of my pieces together using a straight stitch,” For You By Me Studios said.
After sewing all the pieces together, the seamstress added boning in between the fabric pieces for structure.
Finally, she used the remaining fabric of the dress to create a mini skirt with a high slit.
“This is the full set,” the TikToker announced,
“Obviously, it’s a very scandalous slit for that’s fine.”
TikTok users were obsessed with the set and totally jealous of For You By Me’s sewing skills.
“This is amazing. Looks great on you!!” one user commented.
Another user said: “This video just convinced me I have no practical skills. This set is gorgeous.”
“I wish I had the patience for this,” another person commented.
“I love sewing but I always mess up.”
The original poster responded to this comment saying: “Oh girl me too sewing tests my patience.”
The TikTok creator @fybmstudios sells the handmade corsets on an online shop.
This comes as another thrift shop pro found a designer purse at a local store for $7, but when she opened it up she discovered much more than she bargained for.
