Good job, it looks like it fits really well. I also like the other items that you've paired it with on the mannequin.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

This looks great. I want to make my own corset one day, but I'm still hesitating. Mostly because I have never worked with boning, and I don't even understand what the "casing" is (not native speaker). I have to study this more thoroughly. I was planning to do the corset from Natron & Soda, but I think they are not going into the boning at all.

Elphelba - Thanks! Its part of my steampunk costume. Wink

dawgmind  - Thanks! You should try, its actually really easy! Casing is just what the boning comes in. Its like a flat tube of fabric that holds the boning. Since boning is flat plastic (or steel or whatever else) it needs something you can sew through to attach it to your fabric. You can use the casing it comes with, buy your own, make your own or use bias tape or even ribbon. Its intimidating, but take this as an inspiration to try, the corset in this tute was the first one I ever made. Cheesy

Thats because youre a part of something larger. Like
being swallowed by something larger.

This is awesome! You explain things really well. Now I want to make one again and I can't until school is out in December!

I just read the original thread..but had come to the conclusion that it was more for the wee woman/menfolk. As a 40/36/40 gal.. that ain't me! Thanks for the adjustable tut!
