A one piece corset made with a black leather look-alike.
Ages ago I ordered a corset ages ago and it was cheap and flimsy with a zipper so it of course didn't fit properly. I took it apart yesterday and used it as a pattern. Cutting out at least an inch extra for seam allowance and whatnot halfway through I got a little lost to what I was doing and did some research and had to cut some lining and the like withouth using the pattern. It was tricky but in the end there aren't too many things wrong with it. (one side bunches oddly when I wear it and I forgot to count the eyelets so it's an uneven number and I spaced them too far apart. XD it's really good other than that!) I made it to wear at an upcoming event as my steampunk corset but I think that I might be better off making another one in a different fabric. It was fun to make though.
My biggest mistake was forgetting that the hips on my dress-form don't go nearly as wide as mine (hereditary big hips for the win!) Which is why it bunches a little at the side oops.
Peaches and Cheerio!
ps- anyone want a tut? or does anyone think it's sell worthy? I've been neglecting my shop since cutting my hand badly while sewing and maybe this is what I needed to get back on the ball. Hmmmmm...
