First corset completed!!

Postby 7brides7brothers » Mon Jun 10, 2013 9:21 am

So my husband and I went to Denver Comic-Con a few weeks ago. I decided to make a Victorian Black Widow (from the comic books) costume. This is my first corset that I made. I used the LM100 Dore Corset Pattern. I adjusted the pattern to raise the front a bit. Why did I attempt this on my first corset I'll never know!

The jacket I used TV422. I chopped off the sides and the back area. I used a Simplicity Steampunk pattern for the skirt. I did win 2nd place in the craftmanship award (that is the medal I am wearing). I realized I have no better picture of the corset! I'll try to take one on my dressform.

I also don't have my corset very tightly laced. I found out 2 weeks before comic-con that I am pregnant! My corset is tied just tight enough not to fall off!! haha. I did make it to be tight-laced so it wasn't exactly how I wanted it. Oh well! :)
