Tongue Hola all!

Apologies for not being active on the thread. My internet has been way out of wack, I moved and it wasn't working here for a while. I'm still mostly bumming off friends and family right now. Tongue Just luckily I have a friend with internet living next door. Tongue

Happy swaping!

I have a question... Should we wash our new panties before sending them out? 
I think we should.  They shouldn't shrink  Roll Eyes but I'd hate for someone to put a lot of time into something just to end up with puckering around stitches or painted areas poofing up.  Any sizing in the fabric could make paint or dye not adhere too well.

I'll be washing mine.

Oh, didn't think about that for some reason. I'll wash mine too then. Shrink them down.

I'm so excited! Tongue I got in the last spot.

well, if you want help imitating something... it would be very helpful if you could show us the exact piece(s) you want to make. Tongue

as far as that skirt... Well, it sure isn't the easiest thing in the world, especially if you just started. also, would be great if you had additional angles of it. but i personally don't even know how to make the little rough ends.

It looked to me as if the strap was a part of the panel, rather then sewn in later. But in the back, I'd sew it in later anyway, that always makes it easier for me to adjust length. Tongue

okay, here's the basic idea of how I would do the panels:



In my experience, corsets don't really work out without pinning. But the measurements to draw the pattern would be chest under the breasts, stomach, hips at the point where you want the corset to end. The width of the front panel at the top would be the width of the opening. Subtract this width from the measurement, divide the rest by 3 to get the widths of the other panels in that area. The other measurements get simply divided by 4. If you want an actual corset, you'll need to add boning - I'd add it near where the panels come together.

I actually intend to make a shirt like this when I return to the states. So if you want a full fledged out tutorial, I can put one together after the 21st.

Hope you find this helpful, good luck with your project!
