Red & Black Houndstooth Corset

Postby gretagretchen » Sun Jan 23, 2011 5:50 pm

My original TV 110 is getting a bit worse for wear so I decided to make another corset. I was also nervous only having one and no backup. I found a fabulous red and black houndstooth fabric somewhat like a cotton velvet. I think this is one of the best pieces I have ever sewn.

Here is a photo of me wearing the corset with a black fantail skirt and a shrug that was cobbled from TV pattern elements. I don't know why it photographed practically black but it is the same piece. I also made my friend's bloomers.

And rather than starting a new thread here's the other new outfit I wore:

That shrug-over-corset combo is HOT! Image
