For anyone who wants to tackle a corset, it really isn't that hard and of the most fun I've had making a garment!

Used a pattern and cheated a little bit, no grommets, used lacing tape, next one, and there will be a next one will have grommets!

I don't look too bad for a girl with a broken collar bone and torn tricept...... fell off my bike when I was almost done making the corset, had to do all the binding with one arm.

Inside and Outside!




And for anyone who is going to make one, and for fun, the most important part of the whole process...........the mock up!

I really like the white and blue. Very striking! It looks very well made too, with all the top stitching (I love top stitching) That's totally weak about your collarbone and all Sad I have never broken a bone, but I'm way adventurous, so you could say I have a small phobia! Get well fast!

That's great!   Have you worn it out yet?   you should show this as much as possible, I'll bet people try to order them from you.  Alyssa Milano fussed about no womens gear for MLB and ended up being the exclusive designer for womens gear at MLB.com. Maybe you could get something going with the NHL.
