A satin and faux leather underbust corset.
My husband I and I went to ProgPower XI, a Progressive Metal concert and they have a corset photoshoot every year. It sounded like fun, I love corsets and love to sew, so I went for it!

This was one of the tougher projects I've done. It has boning (the scariest part to sew) and lots of grommets and closures. I used a simplicity pattern and cut the basic sections of the corset. You tube tutorials were also very helpful. After cutting the fabrics, I kinda followed the pattern instructions and kinda winged it.

I used a plastic boning material, which is not as sturdy as the metal kind, but it works well. A cool trick to prevent the plastic poking through your fabric is to melt the ends a little with a candle which smooths the sharp edges.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Thank you for looking!

Thank you! Yes, that satin fabric was tough. The edges kept fraying. The fake leathery stuff was pretty easy though. Thanks for commenting. Happy
