Clockwork Corset

Postby SaraK » Sun Oct 25, 2009 1:25 pm

I am so proud of myself! I finally decided that it was time to tackle making my own corset, after months of debating if I should just buy one and forgo the frustration.



(Ignore everything else that's on the sewing dummy. Those were for my Renaissance costume!)

Here's a closeup of the fabric.


I've never had s o much fun working on a project. The whole time I was just so excited that I was moving closer and closer to finally having a corset of my own!

The only thing that I did different was flat line a drill to the novelty cotton, so it would have that extra durability.

I'll post some pictures of me actually wearing it once I finish my chemise and bloomers!

Congrats on your first corset! It looks great! Now you need a gown to wear over it!

Miss Sara,
I think it looks good! I really like how fun your fabric is and what a great job on picking your trim color.

Oooh, I love corsets that are sort of "timeless". You've done a really good work!
I am myslef collecting non-typical fabric for future corsets.
