Ooh, I love the dark green color!

Haha, my corset turned out all funny. There's about a fist-length of extra space under my boobs. Oh well. It was fun to make

oh, and i meant to say when i posted mine and just noticed that i forgot...
for the boning i used an old one of those flexible plastic cutting boards--the kind they sell in packets of two for three dollars or less at kitchen stores.  it worked great for this and it was past its prime as a cutting board, anyway, as it was all scored up.

Did you sew the vinyl like you would any other fabric? Any special thread or certain stitching you used while making this? I have this ton of vinyl I stocked up on after Halloween and I have no idea what to do with it. I totally LOVE LOVE LOVE your corset Lil Dead Girl! Wonderful job, too bad it didn't fit you by a few inches Undecided

I love vinyl!! and have been playing with it for a bit,
1. use a longer straight stitch, if stitching is to close, when pulled the fabric can rip, (do you have the fabric backed vinyl? if so this might not be such a problem,..

2. I take baby powered, and rub it down on the shinny side until its not sticky anymore.. so the presser foot doesn't "stick" to it., or I've heard of people using tissue paper over the shinny side and then ripping it off when done, I haven't tried this...

just take your time, cuz if you have to take out stitching you will see it.,

I'm making it again 1-2." smaller in (100% cotton) pink camoa so I can wear it while fire dancing at wildfire this spring!! Smiley

Oh great thanks for the advice. No actually it's the very thin clothing style vinyl and it's really thin. I found it on sale after Halloween. And I ordered some that is 4way stretch off the internet. I have just been scared to sew with it because I was trying to repair a vinyl skirt I have and fudged it, and ended up ripping the vinyl in a few spots. I didn't think to powder it, that is a great idea! I am going to try this out but I think I might make a skirt first. Did you use a lining at all?? And I would love to see how your new one turns out!

Yes, there is a white cotton lining,  (at the very bottom you can kinda see it). Like I said once I got it together, and found it wasn't going to fit like I thought, I didn't take any extra time doing the finishing.,  (But I should of, cuz then I gave it to a friend, who then did a photo shoot in it, (*the flaws will haunt me when I see her photos!!  eeekkkkk!!!)

There is also a special kind of foot you can buy your machine, a Teflon foot maybe?  you might want to look in to that, cuz if you have a expensive machine, the last thing ya wanna do is load up the workings with baby powered., (I have a new and a old machine, the old one is for the "crap" work like vinyl.

Anyways good luck!! and remember to space your stitching out!!!  (I wanna see pics too!!)
