I was wondering if anyone could help me with my corseted dress. This thread is very long, so I couldn't really find anything.
But, I do have a few questions-
1. Is it more difficult to make a corset dress, than just a corset and a skirt. I can only find patterns were they are separate and I kind of want it to be a one piece.
This is sort of the style I am going for, except my dress is going to be a plain gold fabric on top and a blue fabric underneath for the skirt. The top is going to be all gold, hopefully beaded, with blue stitching, I also like the bra-area on this top w/o the lace.
I really love this corset back, as apposed to one going straight down the back. Would this make things ubberly more complicated?
3. I've see some dresses that have boning that curves, and has more of an intricate design to it, is this an extremely hard process?
4. Can silky fabrics hold up as a corset. I found a fabric in the colors I want, it's a silky fabric, but, it looks like it's dimpled or something (I need to look the name up when I go to the store, but you may know what I mean) I just don't know if a corset can take this, or would you add a lining and stuff anyway?
5. I think this is the last. Beading a corset. Is it possible? Were is a good place to buy a larger gem piece (kind of the middle piece of the beadwork.)
THANK YOU GUYS MUCH!!!
