    Black leather, and in a corset no less! Talk about “edgy”!

    Looks great! Is it boned? Did you machine-sew the leather or did you do it by hand?

      It’s not boned. That’s something that I still need to work on, the instructions for it were a bit confusing where the boning was concerned, so I need to look for a tutorial. I want to get really good at corsets because they’re my favorite.

      I machine-sewed the leather. It was easier than I thought it’d be but I was so nervous to make a mistake!

      Have you got an eyelet punch? They’re quite cheap and much easier than hammering them in.

      I didn’t use a punch. I cut a hole and put the eyelet in. I have an eyelet tool to hammer it in.

      I’m going to buy a punch now though! I’ll be honest and say I didn’t know they existed!
