here is a belt waist corset thing i made after seeing one similar to it in hollywood for 20 bucks. i figured "i could make one thats cuter fits me better and isnt so cheap looking for so much less!" so i did! i didnt use a pattern just made it up as i went i and im so happy with the turn out. also gave me a chance to use some of my random scraps haha

i think itll look cute with a different shirt but i was already wearing batman =)


comments and criticism welcome and appreciated!








UPDATE!!!!!!



okay so here is my tutorial. i hope its understandable

so first, im making one with comics and vinyl as my outer fabric so imagine those as oneor use some awesome comics and clear vinyl to make your geeky boyfriend (okay and my geeky self) ecstatic. im also not using velcro and snaps as a closure but rather intalling gromets.

You will need to measure around your waist where you want to center of the belt to sit or right around the middle of your torso. Add 5 inches to that number and thats about how wide you will want your fabric to be. (additionally if you want part of the straps to be made out of the fabric and not just elastic then make sure you have some extra scraps) the fabric should be about 6 inches tall.

So fabric= (your measurement plus 5) x 6 (and the same of the lining)

and im using 1/2" seam allowance

here is the fabric folded in half with the pattern drawn out (cut our through both layers, and do not cut the fold)



to see the approx size of my pieces click on the pictures below




cut out from both your lining and outer fabric



stitch right sides together at side front and side back seams



sew seam allowances down as you would to create boning casing (on both pieces)



you should now have something that looks like this:




now if you wish to create to partial strap instead of just elastic then follow the next few steps...if not, skip to attaching the straps (or elastic for straps)


cut out two each of the following shape in lining and fabric (sort of a rectangle with one side slanting outward to the bottom and 1/2" larger than elastic at each side on top)



now with right sides together and elastic in the middle centered, stitch around two sides and top



creating a tube with elastic stitched inside



now pull on elastic to turn tube right side out. this is your strap. (i stitched around the outside edge of the strap at this point to make the vinyl easier to work with but you dont have to. it will be sewn around later)



pin straps to outer fabric in place



if you wish to use velcro that is unseen as a closure (like i did in the black belt) attach now by sewing (all the way around) the loop side right side up to the lining 1/2" in from center side. on opposite side, pin the hook side of the velcro to lining with hooks facing away from lining (do not sew down, the edge with bee sewn into the seam and will come out of the seam attaching to the velcro on the inside of the belt)


pin lining with right sides together to outer fabric over straps



stitch around front center edge and top to secure straps leaving a hole open at bottom edge





clip around curved edge at top



turn right side out. turn in edges at opening and pin. stitch oround entire outer edge (including straps if not previously done)



tada! its finished! add gromets if you would like or a snap closure ribbon or whatever you want!
