Ello, im a noob. Anyways a wek or so ago I reconstructed a shirt that was ugly and waaaay too big on me. I made a tutorial while I was making it. It took me about 15 min to do.
Before:     http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y136/chaosinabox/1st-plain.jpg

Fold over about an inch:     http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y136/chaosinabox/onefoldover.jpg

Do this again and pin:     http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y136/chaosinabox/2foldoverpinned.jpg

Sew along folds:     http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y136/chaosinabox/sewn.jpg

Hole punch or use grommets (i dont own a grommet maker):      http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y136/chaosinabox/holepunched.jpg

Lace with something like ribbon(I only had yarn on hand):     http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y136/chaosinabox/finishedlaced.jpg

There you go, and forgive my chubbiness and slightly blurry pictures.

Now the wintertime is coming,
The windows are filled with frost.
I went to tell everybody,
But I could not get across.
Well, I wanna be your lover, baby,
I don't wanna be your boss.
Don't say I never warned you
When your train gets lost.

I was going to stitch around but I got kinda lazy since there's so many holes. Since it's doubled up I guess it holds better.

http://www.shemadethis.com/articles/corset.htm I saw that there, and made it like she did, with eyelets. It turned out great. Is yours holding up without any reinforcement around the holes?
