i'm really wanting one of those corset purses.. but they're so expensive so i was going to just make one myself.
does anyone know how i could contruct one of these purses, and what types of fabrics to use. i know a lot of them are made from pleather.. but i'm wanting to go cheaper than that type of fabric.
if anyone could help that would be wonderful!!

in case anyone would like an example of what i'm wanting to make.. here's a pic i found. Wink

I just love those purses too...I wonder if they make patterns of corsets for tiny kids, because I'm sure that would work just fine...Or...you can try to follow my on-the-moment instructions that I just made up...which seem the easyiest to me if I was going to make it. (sorry if it is too complicating for you...its hard to explain in words and without having a picture to label everything...)

-Get a small padded bra the color and style you want to use...(make sure its the size you want for your purse and get fabric the same color...(do they even make bras that small?...hopefully for your sake)
-Cut a piece of fabric to fit in the middle part and make the ends match the seam on the bra (remember to leave seam allowances)
-Then cut another piece that will fit the rest of the purse, and dont forget to cut out a bottom too.
-Sew the 2 pieces together for the body of the purse, then sew the bottom on and then the bra (i'm not really sure how though...)add the lace and handles and whatever else you want to put on...

(Hope that this helped)

I think that you could use any fabric as long as it's heavily interfaced to give it that stiffness.

was just thinking about this again last night and i though that if you got a corset pattern you could take it to the photocopy shop and get it shrunk down. that might be better cause then you'll have the same look of a real corset but smaller.

I never even thought of that SarahFroggy...And my instructions are so complicated!!! Oh well...Youre idea is great! Now I might go about doing that!!! (Seeing as it sounds so much easier)

I too would love to make one of these....even if it was just to say I could. Seems like a good challenge. I have some vinyl that's just perfect for this project. Anyone know where you can get an online pattern for a bustier that could work for this??? Normally I could find it in a heartbeat but I'm having difficulty tonight. Also, would interfacing work to make the vinyl stiffer (I'm not even sure what interfacing is for....) Huh Loving this bag!!!!

MUST FIND TUTORIAL!!!!  Gosh, you don't know how often i've seen one of those and wanted to make one.  The bags are amazingly cute though.  *mental note: don't bring around conservative 90 year old aunt* I can't wait to see if anyone has an idea...
