My first corset  Grin, made from a up-cycled thrift score skirt, lined with the lining of the skirt.
(sorry for the less than stellar pics  Undecided)



I used Simplicity 2966.

there's just a wonderful shape to your corset, it drew me in automatically. It's also quite flattering with the jeans you are wearing.

This is fantastic, I've been thinking about buying this pattern for a while, I think you've just sold me on it.

Thanks guys!
@ charmingflaws - it took me a long time to work up the courage to make my first corset - but it was *way* easier than I thought it would be Cheesy
