I had mild luck (in reference to the smooshed problem) in lifting and then tying it shut. But it wasn't a permanent fix. I was quite sad to finish it all up and then put it on and have an awful silhouette... that does not mean I didn't bounce around in it and make all of my friends comment of course  Grin   But it was still disappointing.


I enjoy hand sewing sometimes, so It wasn't so bad. About the same time I made two or three skirts hand stitching as well.... thankfully I finally got my sewing machine from my parents house, so things go a bit faster. lol


Thanks for the compliments!

As everybody else i am impressed with your corset. I wonder if you can find again the tutorial you used .... i tried the link you posted much earlier and it seems it is not working anymore .... and a google search didn't get a result for a corset using only one piece of fabric .... although i found few interesting sites  Wink

The site I used is sadly no longer functioning. I don't remember all that well the instructions they gave either! I know that they told you to measure from above your boobs to your belly button and use that as the length and then measure around your body and subtract two for the width. and there is a curve at the top and bottom. The one on the top goes under the arm pits and then goes up again slightly in the back. The bottom one comes to a slight curved point in front and then goes up above your hips and then down slightly in back... If that makes any sense.

I'll see if I can come up with pictures of what I mean. Sorry if that confused any one!


I think you could use jute or any other stiff cord, but you wouldn't want to use anything too thick. But you have to keep in mind it doesn't cinch the waist very much (or at least it didn't on me). And it WILL wrinkle if it's tied too tightly.

Thanks for the compliments~!

I think their new link iswww.elizabethancost ume.net, however not having my bookmarks with me don't quote me on it.  But you want the corset pattern generator

Rumour is that jute twine is fine, as is cotton cording, just make sure you use enough that it is tightly in your channels.   Generally when sewing your channels on a machine, just line the last seam up to the edge of your presserfoot.

Another idea I've had in regards to combatting the squish factor is to get one of those bandeau bras (kinda like a really short boobtube), sew in some pockets like the ones in pushup bras to change the padding and insert some of those gel or cream inserts to add a bit more lift to the squish.  You would need a modesty panel on the back to hide the back of the bandeau bra though, or make the bandeau bra also lace up.

Thanks for posting the link! I'm so excited to have that pattern again (even with the "smoosh effect" it's a nice pattern).

The bandeau is an excellent idea... especially since I already have one around I can alter and I could always wear it under a shirt with the corset over said shirt... that would look decent. OH the possibilities!
