I wanted a corset to wear out and such, so I made a simple underbust corset. I made my own pattern and it fit fine, I took it in a little and added boning since taking this picture. The most fun part was hammering in grommets, because I seem to like smashing my fingers. (Ow)  This is my first project since I broke my arm in early December (horseback riding, d'oh)

I'll post a tute eventually, I have a lot of pics to upload. I am so happy with it! It was my first corset, and my first time making and using my own pattern!
