Hello again!

Some weeks ago I finished a green underbust corset for myself, I was so happy with the fit of the pattern I had made I had no choice but to keep using it! That's why I decided to elongate the pattern to get an overbust corset, as I rather like them overbust. I had to make a couple of mock ups -which I didn't take pictures of- sorry! but after drafting a bra cup pattern I joined them both and got this!

I titled this one Nara because of the fabric. It was a 1 yard piece I got from the retail box at a store in Tokyo last year and had been unable to chop until now. Thankfully I have enough for another corset if anyone ever wants it! Anyway, just as I was cutting it I noticed in the selvage that the fabric had been made in Nara, which is another Japanese city and one of my favourites as well. Now I carry a bit of a lovely country with me whenever I wear this corset!

Binding was made with Kona Cotton in Sand, these cottons work so well for corsets actually! I also used it to reinforce the fashion fabric as it was too thin. The purple bow is repurposed from an item I bought at a local handmade store.
There are 22 bones hiding in there, both Flat and Spiral steel as well as 22 grommets in the back. Cutting all that boning might look tedious but it's actually quite relaxing. I think that's why I love making corsets  Grin

And that's all for today! I have a bit more info at my new blog and a process picture. If you want to take a look here's the link to the entry: http://costurasdeacero.blogspot.com.es/2012/04/hola-de-nuevo-aunque-normalmente-pasa.html

Thanks a lot for looking! <3

That's one of the cutest corsets I've seen! I wish I had the ability to make something that amazing and cute!

I love that your corsets have so much personality to them, as well as being incredibly well constructed. Often it seems that one quality loses out to the other, but you seem to nail it every time.

This corset is beautiful. It makes me think of Victorian ladies and vintage porcelain tea cups. I love the bust line you chose, it adds a modern touch to it.

Thank you so much for your comments everyone! Every one of your words make me happy Smiley Everyone seems to like the bustline, which I'm glad because it's the most complicated thing of the corset!

That is so true! I think the corset is beautiful and very well crafted. Great job!
