11  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Fairy Costume Corset - Simplicity Fairy on: July 26, 2005 05:49:22 AM
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

I'm making my first corset and I need to add eyelets. 

The lady told me I could use my scrapbook eyelet pounder and what not.  I'm fairly confident that will work, but has anyone done it.

ALSO, how big should I make the holes in the fabric/are there any tricks you know - or know where you could point me?

Hey i just finished this dress, which is the first dress I've made since I made a dress in my "learn how to sew class" so I went into it kinda assuming it wouldn't turn out, and now I'm loving it!

I made it with clearance satinfinished fabric at Joann's 2.20 a yard for 3 yards.  ( That's 6.60)
I used Simplicity pattern 4998

Iit actually does good for my figure...but my figure loosing 5 lbs would make the dress perfect. 


Me thinking I'm hot stuff:

This is actually my first post - but I wanted to share something I made, even though it was a costume.  I created it for a Science Fiction Convention (from scratch) on july 4th weekend.  I did not do the superboy costume, I just ran into him and wanted a picture.
However I did make the boots, shirt, cape, vinyl skirt, etc.
Please be nice! Smiley
