DIY elastic cage dress

Thoughts of elastic Cage dresses, skirts, corsets have been going through my mind every morning while getting dressed, specially when I look at the amount of nude pieces that I have collected and that need something strappy added to them. Somewhere I feel like a fraud to make something that is someone else's idea, but who's? Buying an "original" was harder than I thought. If the cages are not sold out, they are of numerous brands and all very simillar.
After making the "frame" I tried out dozens of possibilities for the bottom part by pinning the elastics in many different shapes. I still havn't figured out wich one I'll choose. It's too easy not to make a few.
