I've been wanting to make a corset for years and years, but they always seemed really intimidating...boni
ng, laces, hooks...when I still struggle with putting a zipper in a tote bag. Luckily for me I found this great corset making class and oila...and it wasn't nearly as difficult as I was imagining. And I found this great fabric that is so colorful and graphic that I figured it would hide any small mistakes. Here is the finished project.

And a close up of the fabric. I think it is by Alexander Henry.
It's not perfect, but I'm really happy with it for being my first try. I can't take credit for the pattern. The instructor drafted the patterns for us, so I just had to cut and sew, but I can't wait to make another one.
Thanks for looking.
