This was a corset I made out of old shirts. I hope you guys like.




Boning?  I know that this is used to keep the corest up and to help it keep shape, but is there anything CHEAPER!?  You need so much of it, its expensive, AND it seems to ruin it.  TO sew it, there's visible seams on the front, which I don't want.  Any ideas?

Well I made a corset out of old shirts for my Halloween costume that turned out looking great. (It was my first one too) I cost me not a penny

I think for a corset look, you did a lovely job...and in my favorite color!

and at no cost, even better!!

True corsets with the boning and additional support can be very costly, as you know...

So if you were just going for the look, then you did not fail!  Cheesy

I think that you did a good job for your first corset, especially with limited supplies.  If you want to make one that will stand up to more wear, then I suggest that you buy a yard of cotton duck fabric (or a similiar fabric with a bit of weight) and then use a basic corset pattern to make the inside of the shirt which will have the boning (sew the boning into the seam allowances). For boning I suggest that you use duct ties, which are larger weight cable ties. You can find duct ties at Lowes, or Home Depot for about 5 dollars for enough to make a corset. These are great for beginners because they do not bend as quickly as the plastic bones from Joann's do. I'm not sure how to make a corset without any visible seams on the front, but maybe some one else will have some suggestions. Also: Make sure to stabilize the grommets in the back lacing panel with extra boning, so it doesn't bend awkwardly.

Once again, good job; my first corset looked like crap, lol.
