This is the second corset I ever made and the first attempt at making one the "proper" way and not being all costume-riffic with it. The piece is a combination of machine and hand stitching. I created it from scratch including the pattern after reading huge  amounts of things on line including some awesome tutorials and advice here.

It  is made out of inexpensive materials as this was a "learning" corset. Mostly cotton twill and denim with cable ties for most of the bones though I did use real steal bones for the area around the eyelets and a good steal busk. The trim was designed with muslin and netting to give that de-constructed look and the bottom trim was this great fuzzy black yarn I found. I was looking to extend the organic feeling of the roots.

This was a great learning experience and I hope to do another really soon. Here are some very poor pictures I took on sunday.

I think it looks great, especially for a first attempt. I've always wanted my own corset, but I wouldn't know where to start! I love the tree design Smiley

Did you just say that you did hand embroidery on denim?  Makes my hand tired just thinking about it.  But it sure looks worth it!

Oh wow!  I just had to stalk back through your other posts (hoping to see the other attempt at a corset) and recognized the black shirt you made... this corset and the shirt go great together.  If I ever become proficient enough to attempt something like this I hope it turns out like yours.  Your outfit looks great and the corset is amazing.

Beautiful work! The hand stitching on it is amazing. An impressive first attempt.... my first attempts never look that great.
