1  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Another pair of love birds on: September 24, 2010 11:42:46 AM
I bought the Sublime Stitching design pad after seeing someone else do the lovebirds design, so it had to be the first thing I made from it! Cheesy I can't remember who had posted theirs, it was a while ago! If I find your name, major props!




(my first time doing satin stitch. am in love!)


(lols. am I messy?)

Elphelba - Thanks! Its part of my steampunk costume. Wink

dawgmind  - Thanks! You should try, its actually really easy! Casing is just what the boning comes in. Its like a flat tube of fabric that holds the boning. Since boning is flat plastic (or steel or whatever else) it needs something you can sew through to attach it to your fabric. You can use the casing it comes with, buy your own, make your own or use bias tape or even ribbon. Its intimidating, but take this as an inspiration to try, the corset in this tute was the first one I ever made. Cheesy

Part 2, the construction, is up! Sorry it took so long, life got in the way! Wink

I'm almost finished with another corset in twill, rather than muslin, so I'll post pics of that when its done.

I hope to see some other peoples' corsets soon too!!

The reason they wont shatter: As the glass gets heated up it expands. Rapidly cooling it in water causes it to contract quickly, and because the marble is spherical, all the force from it contracting is directed inwards. It works for the flat glass marbles because they are rounded and likewise all the force of contraction is directed inwards.

trypgirl - thanks!

VintageGeek - Its SO easy. I thought it was hard too until I did this. The boning is a little awkward, but there are ways of making that easier on yourself. Check out how Roethke puts her boning in, its easier than the way I'm going to do mine in the next part of the tute. I'm cutting long thin strips of plastic and making pockets out of bias tape for them to sit in. She cuts larger pieces of plastic and cuts them to fit the actual pieces of the corset, so there is no pocket making.

amalgam - Thanks! It really is easy Cheesy I'll try to get the second half up soon!

I hope this is ok! I used elements of your tutorial to make my own corset pattern, but I modified it to fit my body better. I wrote a tutorial in case there are other long torso'd freaks like myself who needed a better fit Wink Awesome tutorial, thank you for sharing!!

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / DIY Custom Fit Corset Pattern & Link to Tutorial - UPDATED: Part 2 Added! on: October 09, 2009 07:33:40 AM
I wanted to make my own corset and I found Roethke's tute here that was fantastic! I also found a booklet online about custom fitting a corset to your body shape. Since I have a long torso... this was useful. Really useful! So I drafted my own custom pattern using both of these things and thought I'd share how I did it. (UPDATE: Here is the finished corset!)

Like I said, I used two other sources to make my own mash-up tutorial, and I reference them repeatedly, so don't think I made this up all by my lonesome. Wink Roethke did a fantastic job on her tutorial so mad props to her and her awesome corsets! And Cathy Hay is a mastermind at fitting corsets, so mad props to her as well for sharing her booklet on corsetry. Links to both of these can be found in the tutorial, which is on my blog. I could copy and paste it here but - OMG that would take forever! And it took a long time to write the thing one time around.

Ok, here's a pic of what the FINISHED pattern will look like for your custom fit corset.

And here's a link to the tutorial.
