An Altered Corset Bra or Merry Widow

Seems like I see more and more clothing that is altered from its original state.  Sometimes I see corsets or merry widows worn over other clothing.  I pick them up whenever I find them making sure they are clean and in good condition.  Here is one I picked up several weeks ago.

This is the first one I have decorated.  It is really pretty and is off white in color.  It needed some more oomph!  So I added more lace and some bling!

I added older soft lace around the top and the bottom.  Then today I sewed on by hand the vintage rhinestone necklace.

Here's a close up.  I think this would look great over a plain white tee that fits closely to the body and then add a lacey sleeveless vest.  All over jeans or a long white skirt with ruffles on the bottom.  How cute would that be??  Don't know yet whether or not I am going to sell it on Etsy or in my booth at Merchant Square.  I can't wear it, unfortunately.  It's a 34B.
