Hi all!!
Saw a gorgeous pinstripe underbust corset in the shops the other day, and after mooning over it for a while i realised that I couldnt afford it. (200euros eep!!) So instead I resolved to make my own, which cost about 10euros for materials and 10hours of slavelabour!!:) And got it finished that very day...without any unfortunate incidents this time, like me pinning it to myself, as happened with my previous corsetry attempt!

here it is worn over a top for decency!


And modelled by my pillow..


The lace at the top isnt supposed to stick out at the sides, i think i must have sewed it on a little oddly! Also It was originally just supposed to be a plain underbust but then i decided to add odd sort of half-cups... and the lace was a wacky idea i had at 2am, after more than 9 hours of sewing in one day!!

and the back..

That is a great fit. I love the under bust corsets, just at my age, would have no use to wear one. Smiley I am going to check out your clothing line later, as this looks so professionally tailored. Great job. You model your clothes well.

This is cute. I like the bust shaping. I'm going to play with that on my next corset. I like the lace at the to too. Maybe if you think it sticks out funny you could Put a small dart in the side by hand where no one would notice. I used a ruffle on an underbust I posted as well. They are forgiving  Roll Eyes

i based the pattern very vaguely on a corset i already had, but mostly i just made it all up, and then adapted it as I sewed! Hence it sticks out a little too much at the bottom but its not very noticable thankfully Smiley
