I've made a corset before, but it turned out a bit too large and ended up being my sister's (which isn't too bad, actually, because she likes it ^^)
This time I managed to make one for myself... I quite like it, except for the bias tape. I guess this stuff simply hates me xD

I like it  Smiley The front is jacquard, right? And is there lace on the side seams?

Bias tape: Maybe you should try to make it like the binding on a quilt ... i find that way much easier than the normal way.

And in german  Wink
Wirklich hübsch ... wenn mir nur immer genügend englische Wörter einfielen.  Grin
Wegen dem Schrägband, versuchs mal so: Leg es auf der Innenseite mit den offenen Kanten zur Schnittkante am Korsett und näh dann füßchenbreit dran lang. Dann faltest du es auf die Vorderseite um (da hast du dann ja die Bruchkante) und nähst es von vorne noch mal fest. Unter Umständen ist normales Schrägband zu schmal dafür, aber das geht beim Korsett eigentlich auch mit geraden Streifen, die kann man sich selbst schneiden.

Thanks =)

Hamsterdrache: Ja, das ist Jacquard und Spitzenborte an den vorderen Nähten ^^ Ich hab dazu im NuS-Forum auch ein WIP geschrieben, das zu übersetzen hab ich mir allerdings geschenkt.
Danke für den Tip mit dem Schrägband ^^ Ich bin noch am überlegen ob ich das nochmal neu mache, mal sehen ob's dann besser wird.

I love it! Did you use a pattern? How about a tutorial for those of us dreaming of creating their own corsets?

Nicely done!!  Smiley What pattern did you use, if any? I've been looking for one but no pattern company, at least the more common ones makes a decent looking one and the generators I've found online are always inaccurate or don't explain enough.

I didn't buy a pattern but made one myself, using a tutorial. It is german, though, so I guess it won't be much of a help. For sewing the corset I used another tutorial which is, you might have guessed it... german.

I've seen quite a few corsets using this pattern and they looked really nice. Maybe you can try that?

I was able to find a pattern for an underbust from that link, and I just ordered it. Thanks  Grin
