1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / making a corset with light stretch fabric, how to stabalize? on: October 16, 2012 07:47:48 AM
So I am making a corset, and the fabric that I needed to use was selected for color and pattern, but its too flimsy to work on its own.  I am not sure what to do about it.  Can I just use an iron on iterfacing to give it more stability? Do I then have to line it?

The pattern is a total PITA with four front gussets, two front darts, and four hip gussets, so I am trying to avoid having to sew it twice (to line with a sturdier fabric- ) or three times- for interfacing and lining. 

Can I use an iron on interfacing without lining it?

I was thinking of just cutting out iron on interfacing in the final shapes (in other words -without seam allowances except for an overlap at the sides to reinforce that seam).  iron onto the finished corset pieces then top stitch on both sides of the original seams to make sure it all holds together?     

How would you do it?
