1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / ~ Steel Boned Polka Dot Underbust Corset ~ on: May 04, 2007 02:09:12 PM

Made my big sister (she's on here as intergalacticjo) an underbust corset a wee while ago.  I am her sewing slave.

here it is

the outer part in the making


It's guts


Jo's pillow modeling the finished corset lol

I made it by taking apart an old corset that fitted well but had icky fabric and makeing a pattern out of that please dont ask me how i honesly dont no how i managed it.

It looks loads better on but jo wouldnt let me take a pic of her in it coz it makes her doos look massive(er) and funnily high up.

Anyway there it is and I'm never ever makeing another sodding corset with out a pattern it nearly killed me.

This is the first time I've made a dress and used a pattern. thank god it was really easy Cheesy

I used Butterick pattern B4790
I made the skirt part half circle instead of full circle since I didnt want it to be too wooshy .
The front wraps right around and buttons at the back then the back wraps around and buttons at the front.

here's the dress (no I'm not on a hill my mum was just trying to be artistic  Roll Eyes )

here's the side veiw

close up of the heart buttons  Smiley

I made a practice one out of a bedsheet first then tryed to dye it black but it didnt work so I gave it to my boyfriend to play with.
I think he likes it  Cheesy

nick in a frock

for mine I'm going to make a red flower pin or something to make it a bit more exciting i think.

If I get a chance I might make one to list on my etsy shop  but i think I'll practice again first though, but i just want to make like 10  there so fun  Grin

I filled it up with some memories of me and my boyfriend (we've been going out since I was 13 lol) and i gave it to him on Valentine's day  Kiss

close up of the writing on the front

i made a little pocket inside the front cover and put a Czech glass heart in it

I left most of it blank for him to fill in.
