So you did two layers of fabric..?

I think when I make another, I'll do two layers of fabric and a plastic "boning" core, cutting a sheet instead of ribs, and see how that works.
THere are two layers, one is the lining of course.  I think that was made pretty clear in the tutorial, that this is a potentially reversible corset.  At least I hope I made that clear.  THe picture I just posted is of both sides of the corset.

Thanks, I'm a bit slow today... too much celebrating last night, I think.

so after you sew the four pieces together do you hem the bottom and then sew it to the lining when you do the bottom seam? cause the way i understand it is that you end up with a pouch and then sew along where the hourglass piece seams are making four little pouches and add binding to the top...when do you sew the edges that become the front and back edges.

I'm afraid I don't understand your question.

In regards to curvier girls using corsets, well, I'm a size 12 and I wear corsets ALL the time. I've just found that the boning needs to be much stronger and thicker.

The beauty of corsets is that they are pretty much one-size-fits-all if they are lace up as you can adjust it to any shape and size.

What I do is make it one size smaller than my normal size and then add grommets and lacing so that I can adjust it.

Give it a go!

Oh, That's Great!! Thanks A Bunch for the advice I'm gonna go give it a try! Smiley

Crazy SNakes! I just spent the day making waist cinchers with my friend. Very similar to that, just shorter in height.
