I turned a leather jacket into a corset for SteamCon!!  I really loved the stripes on the back of the jacket and on the pockets so I cut out the parts I liked and connected them with the buttons already on the jacket!!  And the pockets still work!  There isn't any bonning in this so technically not a corset but I got the look I wanted from it.  I also cut out the collar from the top and put it on top of the corset (not pictured) for a really nice finish.  Thank you grandma for the old White sewing machine that could handle sewing through this much leather! 









Thanks for looking!!

I do like that, and I can see why you picked the stripey bit, it looks great.

Props to you for being able to see the potential.

Scholars and artists...differ most importantly in the way their knowledge is come by.  Scholars get theirs with conscientious thoroughness along projected lines of logic; poets...stick to nothing deliberately, but let what will stick to them like burrs where they walk in the fields.

Nice!  I have a few projects I would like to get done before SteamCon but I am not sure if I am going to make it. If I see you in this I'll say hi!

Thank you thank you!!  It's not technically a corset because it doesn't have boning but because of how thick the leather is and it's just tight enough it puts everything where it's supposed to go! lol!  I just made sure to cut the back panel so works with my curves, so it fits nice and snug holding me up.  It does kind of collapse in the back but I'm not super worried about it.  It allows for some bending and breathing! LOL!!
