It's a corset bag!


I took a corset pattern, leveled the bottom, and sewed the opening closed...


Then I put a bottom on it (note: ovals are eeeeevil to draft) and bound the edge with bias tape. I slipped a length of polyester boning through the binding so the base stands open. The boning in the body helps it stand up!




The back laces with grommet tape. It doesn't open, though.


The "lingerie straps" are removable and can be reconfigured: Crossed, uncrossed, off...


This was my first time working with boning but definitely not the last. I think it could come in handy for way more than corsets and corset bags!

Thanks for looking!
