    Started · Last post · Displaying all 3 Post

    So yh I always make my own patterns just wanted a little guidance on the corset/top half. There is a pleated skirt.

    I am going to make it out of maroon coloured satin and for the bust cups I am going to cut up shoulder pads, but that is the bit i am not not sure of. how do i measure it, and how do i attach it to my dress.

    i will comment a picture of a similar style of dress.

    any links to a tutorial online would be great.

    I feel like the shoulder pads might look a bit odd as bust cups, if you've done it before and it looked good go for it, if not I would recommend getting some bust cups at Joanns (if you have a Joanns) or using an old bra. I think the bust cups come with directions xD Not sure. You could even get a pattern that had directions on putting in bust cups. And if I were you I would add boning to the dress...? If you were comfortable with doing that.
