Well, here they are, at last.
This first one is after a custommade pattern. It's an underbust with extra hipwidth. It's simply a halfmoon-shaped piece from the waist down over the hips. Something like that.



This is the latest pvc-corset, made from a Simplicity pattern (#7215) . Since it's not made for me it's being modelled by a pillow Smiley



This is the same Simplicity pattern, but in silk. Hopefully the crinkles will straighten when put on real model Smiley The neck-corset is only boned with plastic.



Back. This lacing seems to be the easiest to pull.



I've used four layers of fabric in the top one, and three in the other two. Steel boning, and steel spiral boning.

The silk one is very pretty, as is the fabric for the top one.
Not much of a fan of the underbust yet, maybe I'll be converted some day.

surfergrl311 ... this pattern comes in sizes down to 6 and it doesen't seem to be hard to alter.

PixieSkull ... I'm waiting for my overbust with cups pattern, otherwise I'm too big for a regular overbust.

indie33 ...actually, it's already sold. It was ordered.

bag_lady ... Try a teflon-foot or just use bakingpaper (if that's really an item in USA) a bit thicker than the stuff you wrap flowers in. If your brand don't have teflon feet, there is teflonstrips available, but I don't know where to get them. Ask your local dealer Smiley If the machine feeds from above aswell as from under it's a plus.

eowynmn ... #7215

bitibis... It's fairly easy. Make canals on the middlelayer and then put whatever you use for boning in there. Smiley
