My daughter was visiting from Florida for a week and unfortunately we were low on cash. We couldn't afford to go anywhere special so I suggested we make something together. She said she wanted a corset top so we went from there. She picked the fabric and we got some instructions, that were a bit confusing from time to time. Lets just say there was some guessing here and there, but FINALLY we were able to make a close facsimile. Here she is. She is holding on to it because we still had to get some grommets for the laces.




I usually make bags or dolls. I haven't made many clothes so I am kinda proud of it and it was a learning experience. Any comments are welcome.

well done for making a corset with such little experience with clothes making. it looks good. a few quick questions though.
were you using boning if so steel or plastic? is it multilayered? i.e does it have a lining and strength layer and then the fashion fabric
when i was making my first corset i found some great instructions on one of the corset making forums on yahoo, it was a great help and reasonably clear. i can either send you the document or try to find the link if you want it.

That will look beautiful all laced up! And the fabric is lovely. Good work on a first time corset!

Thaliya:  You should post a link. I know I would like one =]

I used plastic boning. I used black lining and iron on interfacing on both lining and the outer fabric.
I'll take you up on the link if you have it. I might want to try it again. This was a good learning experience, but I think I can do better.

It's possible that the direct link will bnot work because you have to join the corsetconstruction group on yahoo but it is worth it.
