I used a New Look pattern #6480 and an AFI t shirt to make this corset. It has 9 panels, boning, and a side zipper closure. Kind of a simple corset (no lacing, grommets, etc) but it's my first one. I will be making more. I want to make corsets out of ALL of my t-shirts! It's nice since it has the corset style but is still comfortable!

I had to alter the pattern a little to better fit my shape/size and also adjusted the shape of the corset a bit more to my liking. Sorry for the poor picture quality!

What a great idea to turn a t-shirt into a corset. It looks great.

I'm very impressed. I didn't think it was possible to make a corset from t-shirt fabric.  I thought it would be too stretchy and would wrinkle.  Yours is lovely and neat.

Wow that turned out great! Grin Is it stretchy enough to just slip off, or did you put in a zipper?

It's not stretchy at all! I put a zipper on the side.  Smiley

Yes, I did use woven fabric as a lining.

I am totally doing this with my DF t-shirt! Amazing Smiley

Are the AFI logo's patches or how did you work it with the boning so there are no bumpy bits? (I hope that makes sense - I have dyspraxia so my written language is not the best)

Pure awesomeness!  I can't swear that I will actually attempt this, but I will now have loads of wonderful daydreams of turning my well-loved band tees into rockin' corsets.  Why, oh why, didn't I ever learn to sew properly?!  The quality on this is so ridiculous that I doubt many would believe it was homemade.  You are one talented Craftster-er!  Smiley

Such a great idea for old band t-shirts! Well done!

Are you using a men's tshirt (which I find sometimes they make men's band tees in stiffer fabric than women's)?

I need to eventually learn how to make corsets. I also have some band tees and various printed tees that could use this treatment!

To answer a couple questions... The AFI logo is not a patch. It's printed onto the shirt. And yes, it was originally a "men's" sized shirt.

I've been trying to think of a way to make a t-shirt corset for a while, but I can't decide how to get it shaped properly without cutting out pieces of the printing. How did you peice the outside to avoid destroying the printing?
