Construction a Corset

Hello!

I must admit, that my art has been taking presidence as of late because well, I’ve been busy. And that’s why haha. Don’t get me wrong, I am happy but then again I like to sew to unwind a lot and it’s hard to do that when you have a lot of people wanting you to draw things and it’s amazing but there is only so much time in the day. SO! I have only been able to sew so much. Hopefully soon I’ll be able to get into the fun stuff.

I could only manage to sew the lining into the corset with some bias tape I had laying around the house. I’m glad I did it this way, it really tied up all the lose ends. Really alls I did was pin the lining on, then pin the bias tape on, and turn on some Netflix and let it go! This took about 8 hours so far and I haven’t even gotten to the lining yet!I’ll be sure to post more soon. I apologize and the lull. I need to manage my time more.

Cut out the pattern!

Here I just marked my own lines for the boning. I added more than the pattern called more. Make sure it’s symmetrical.

  1. I very much like the placement of the boning, looks like it would be sturdier then the usual plastic boned ones I have had/seen.

    Gimme some good old fashioned steel boning any day 😉

    1. Thank you! That is a very lovely compliment 🙂 The ones on the pattern originally although were still good, but I like a little more support. BUT! Who am I to tell you! Then queen of corsets and badassery!
