Hey all this is a corset that I made for part of my pirate costume. the design for the costume will look something like this.



so far I have made the corset, using some fabric that I got for AU$3.00 p/m.

And here are the corset photos

Front


Side ( and yes I gave my pillow boobs just to see if the corset sits ok)


And finally back


Please let me know what you think, and go easy on me cause it's my first time..........

I will post the rest of the costume when it is finished.

It looks amazing! I really want to see the costume finished...

I hope you have a friend to help you tie up the corset...  Wink I made my first one for a costume a little while ago and I spent about an hour trying to tie it... next time, I'll use busk...

here are some pics of the belt and half finished skirt I just need to put a zipper in the back and hem the under layer or the skirt, but you get the picture.

Front


Back


I think I need to make an underskirt made from netting to make it poof out a bit. What do you think?
