Are your lacing bits tiny brass knuckles?! Neat!

I think those are super cute! I think the way to avoid the "tight at the wrist" would be to slightly bow the cut outward in the wrist area, so that once you laced them, it wouldn't be so tight at the wrist and you could make it tighter near the fingers and up the arm part.

Ok, so after reading all 100+ pages of this post, I still didn't find the ONE piece of help/info that I was looking for Sad

I am not new to sewing or to using boning. I've made a few corset and corset style tops before. My problem, is I've acquired a pattern (with no instructions) that has a bust gore (or possibly termed gusset as I've seen). I can not seem to get this piece to look right. The point always has a "buckle" to it, distorting the piece it is inserted into.

Any of you ladies that have constructed items with a bust gore, any tips would be greatly appreciated. I've scoured the internet for hours only to find no answer to my question!

I found this site while looking for corset supplies. They make custom dress forms and also have various sizes (with/without the crotch). Check into it, it may be worth it for you Smiley

Those are all a lot of fun. I love the dragon eyes and the wings. The Alice ones are unique too (and I'm a HUGE Alice fan...)

Any one and I mean ANY ONE who has tips for getting bust gores to look right, please share. I'm having a devil of a time getting the point to look right. I keep getting 'buckles' and the point doesn't lay 'flat' the way it should. I appreciate any tips and tricks that any one has! Thank you Smiley
7  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: how do you organize/ keep patterns? on: February 02, 2012 06:47:42 PM
I use ziplock bags, the biggest. I can write on the bag the size the pattern is cut to. Then I can put all the pattern pieces in it, as well as the original pattern 'bag'. Keeps moisture from getting to your patterns as well. I store them in clear plastic totes, by type. Like dresses in one, skirts in another, etc.

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / From curtains to corset! (A little pic heavy) on: November 04, 2011 10:02:01 AM
So I used part of a pattern that was for a halloween costume for the corset part. And I used remnant scraps from some curtains I shortened for a friend.
This is the curtain material. A nice burgundy. And I did a lining in silver lining material.
View of it mostly finished

This is a view once the finishing silver trim was added
