So I've finally done it! After starting this project in the summer, I've finally within the past few days, found the patience to finish this.

Its an underbust corset made out of scrap leather that I picked up from an artisan shop in the summertime. What I wanted to do was make the frame for the corset (black denim, 8 pieces) and then sew the leather overtop of it so you couldnt see where each piece of the original pattern ended and the next piece started. Its still got all the curves and angles that the frame does, but its one continuous piece (of pieces) of leather.

I'm so happy with how this turned out, theres only one part Im not happy with and thats the very last area I did when I was getting low on scraps.. they ended up getting tinier and tinier and I think it looks too busy compared to the rest Tongue. (But I wont point it out cause hey.. if you dont know where it is, you cant agree with me! hahaha).

I'm super proud and had to share this with my fellow craftsters, I would love any comments or (helpful) criticism Smiley Thanks for reading through all this, now onto the pictures!

That is a cool idea. I have a ton of scrap leather, small bits I can't bare to throw away.  Might have to give this a go:)

To each their own

This is so cool! It looks great and like it took a lot of work!
