Basques for Breast Cancer

Be what you want to be with 
Bodice Beautiful
This project brief was to design and make a bodice to auction and raise money for Breast Cancer Care.

The basque was fully boned and fully adjustable (to allow for potential mastectomy – with artificial breast pads). The front heart was made of felted English wool from a Warwickshire crafter. 

It was shown in the Lock Gallery at the Canal Basin in Coventry. It was part of a concurrent fashion show. The basque was auctioned at the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum, and sold to a lady in Cornwall.
