Very good advise LaLa!! What she said Emma. I remember doing all that when I was in home ec in school. When I was junior high, we made an apron and a patchwork pillow. Before I got to high school, my grandmother gave me a sewing machine and because I knew the basics, I started making my own clothes. I made a couple of tops that I got compliments on and because it was just the ninth grade, many of my friends couldn't believe I made it from scratch, without a pattern. Then when I took home ec in high school I learned how to use a pattern, I hate them even though I have a mess of em!! You gotta cut out the pattern and then basically cut it again after you get the material laid out. Such a pain in the arse with all that cutting!! When you do try your hand at a pattern, there are ones that actually say they are easy, like a dress with no zipper, a wrap skirt with no buttons and you can make them at various lengths. I still sew clothes on ocassion, but I've been wanting to get back to it but make my own designs. You may have inspired me to get in gear, so thanks! And good luck with whatever yourfirst project turns out to be.
It really doesn't cost a lot to make one. My daugter's dress that I posted here earlier this year only costed me about $20 or so. I used satin and simple lining material with a zipper. I used a pattern that I had forever, modified the measurements and made new one. The only tedious part about was sewing on the sequins one by one .
She loved it. It's the one you favored.
If it's the same corset video made from a plaid shirt and a t-shirt, then yeah I have seen the link to how to make your own custom sized corset, but other than that, that's the only corset how-to that I ever seen on threadbanger, of course, after I found that one I didn't look any further.
I posted this link for someone else before wanting to learn the same thing
try this, i remember seeing this a while back
