Hey all this is my second clothing post  Grin
I've made three underbust 'corsets' using a self drafted pattern, so on to the pictures!!

The first one made from a silky fabric that had no give at all. I'm a poor student so the boning is made from strips of plastic food mat. I had to lace up the front because at this time i didn't have money for hook and eyes.

one side flat out.

The second corset made fron striped streach denim (BIG MISTAKE) this streached too much and didn't fit me poperly around under the bust.

Also i got hook and eye tape but put it in the wrong way round. Excuse the face Tongue

This was my thrid attempt i made the corset a little smaller around the waist but then it didn't fit me.
This was made from linen i dyed myself, i'm really plased with this one.

Laid out flat, yes i am aware it looks squint  Embarrassed

These were only test garments, Any comments or helpful advise would be greatly appreciated!

I love the colors on the purple one!  Way to recycle with the boning, too.  I think the first one looked good with the lace up, but I bet hook and eye is easier.
They're all pretty- no advice, but lots of compliments!

Thank you for posting that link, it looks simple enough! I like the craftmanship on your corsets, I'd expirement with some notion-type stuff- maybe making them reversable, or putting decorative trim on the egdes. Corsets are awesome for drawing attention to one's figure, sometimes it helps to sew on lace in a somewhat hourglass shape to accentuate that. Overall dear great job! (hope someone form back home sends you some $$ soon!)
