I made the corset part of a costume I'm making for our local fantasy/ren fair.  It doesn't have a lot of support (as it's a costume pattern) so I think I'm going to put an extra bit of the pink fabric behind where the eyelets are so I can wear a strapless bra with it - or whenI'm all done the wings could cover that part.  I still have to make wings (and maybe the undershirt that goes with this) and the skirt with tiered ruffles. 

Anyway I wanted to share because it's the first time I've done eyelets or any boning (only on the sides in this pattern) and I think it turned out ok).

Also, for the eyelets I used my scrapbook eyelet setter and hammer and it worked great.  I've heard people having trouble with the eyelet presser.  Sometimes the simple way is the best way.

The pattern I used was 4902

Oh my god!! Awesome! I have this pattern and attempted it a while back -- I wanted to make it reversible so it would go with many things. I made it out of red and purple satin with a black braided cord for the lacing. It looked great, but as I finished it and tried it on, I realized that I had made a most horrible mistake . . .. I left out the boning! D'OH! And the way I had done the reversibility I couldn't go back and put in the boning, so I chunked it Sad

But yours looks AWESOME! Great job! Oh and if you dont mind me saying, "you go girl!" for being big breasted and wearing a corset! Im the same way and I love corsets, but alas, they are so hard to hold up (unless they are like the "real" corsets that people used to wear as underwear).

Anyway, its wonderful!

That does look great!  The eyelets turned out great... Now I want to buy an eyelet setter!  Which one do you have?

It makes me so happy to see people's finished projects when I help them with the fabric.  I can never imagine what everything is going to look like.  I love the little pointy bits on the chest (I'm sure there was a better way to say that, but whatever!)

I can't wait to see the rest of the costume.  Do you already have the fabric or will I be seeing you again soon?   Cheesy

That's really cute; it looks great on you! I love corsets:). Is that just bridal satin type fabric? I haven't ever attempted this pattern, so it's nice to see that it looks good when made! I'm also voluptuous, and have been trying to figure out how to keep the corset from flopping without wearing a bra (cuz I think the skin under the lacing in the back is sexy, and don't want to cover it up!). I've been wondering if clear plastic straps would work? Hmm....

Gah!  The one day I don't work! (They'd seriously have me working seven days a week if I didn't have zero availability on Fridays!)
