Yeah, I know a corset has been done in a previous dollar store challenge, but it wasn't underbust! And it (as well as the placemat corset this round, which IS fabulous!!) didn't have over 260 rose petals sewn to it one by one! This is my first challenge, and hopefully y'all think I deserve some beginner's luck!
All hail my sister, the lovely model! She's a little small for the corset, but I'll take it in for her.
And the in progress pics - from one petal to 100 to 264!!
I stitched these all individually with a machine. I bought two t-shirts, one roll of tulle, one package of rose petals, and three longstem wire flowers. Petals were used as loops instead of grommets. I removed the flowers and used the stems for boning. The tulle is the lace up the back. The first t-shirt was the base onto which the petals were sown and the second for lining. I can post a tutorial later, if you guys like - right now, time for work! <3
