THIS IS MY FIRST ATTEMPT AT A CORSET! ^^

When my mom came over a few months ago she brought this massive amount of 4mm thick rubber I didn't take with me when moving out. It had been standing in her garage for ages and she wanted it gone (that, and a lot of other crap I left them stuck with, hehe)! I used it for making rubber bracelets and chokers ages ago, now I was absolutely puzzled as to what to do with it! So it just sat there for a while...

Luckily, I ran into a great tutorial on how to make an underbust corset (http://samleather.tripod.com/corsetmaking.htm) which I then slightly altered so it would work for my rubber. I wasn't really pleased when I discovered that my sewing machine was no match for this sturdy material and I ended up sewing the entire thing by hand. I then finished it off with some reflective tape.
Thadhaa!




P.S.: It didn't need boning because it held an excellent shape!

I think it's a much more elegant solution to a pile of rubber than I would have come up with.

I'd love to see the back of this. What have you tied it with?

I don't envy you the sore fingers you must have had stuffing a knitting needles through rubber. It looks worth it though!
