1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Corset Making Question on: January 15, 2014 01:59:49 PM
I have wanted a corset forever. I think it would be so useful for so many costumes. It's almost impossible for me to find lingerie that fits properly so I've decided to make one. I have a good handle of sewing projects and have come up with a good pattern for the corset I want to make based on the pictures I've found of it online (http://www.agentprovocateur.com/lingerie/corsets-and-basques/info/mercy-corset~black). I've done a lot of research but have a few questions.

My questions are based on materials.
1. Since I'm so small, do I even really need boning or is there a better alternative? I don't necessarily need it to function. I just want it to look pretty and be lightly structured.
2. What would be the best lining? Again, since I don't need a corset to cinch my waist or anything I'm wondering if I really need to put as many layers into it as a traditional corset.
3. I want it to look like a corset and be slimming but I don't have concerns of keeping anything in place. Is a corset really what I need to be researching or is there a better word?
