I have the basic construction of this shirt down. I've made a couple of similiar projects. I was just wondering if anyone has any ideas regarding the buckles that go across the front (particularly the way they conect to the shirt.) How would I make the little pointy things? Would I cut the fabric that way and stitch it on, or is there something more complicated than that involved?

Sorry for the re-post, but I put it in the wrong board by mistake, and I'm new so I don't know how to move it back...

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

First you want to construct your garment.  Then make 8 triangles and sew them to your corset.  Then you would sew a strap to each side, on top of the triangle - one side having eyelets and the other side having the buckle attachment.

Thanks. I was thinking the triangle part and the strap part (with the grommets or buckle) were going to be one piece. That makes things a lot less confusing.

The triangles are really helping to stabilize the straps.  So when you pull and cinch it up it doesn't pull on the fabric (making holes, funky wrinkles on the fabric, etc).  It can also be a decorative element - so you're not confined to making the triangle shape either, just as long as it is larger than your strap size.

Thank you so much. Should I reinforce the triangles with interfacing, or is it enough that I'm using a sturdy fabric?

I think that you should be o.k. I'm guessing you're going to use a leather\pleather like material?

I was thinking about trying something else, but after thinking it through, I'll probably go with one of those because I think it may be easier to work with. Thanks a lot for your help.
