I made this corset as part of a co-sew-along I’m hosting over on my blog A Few Threads Loose. I used a 1950’s vintage style digital pattern and added details like lace overlay, a back closure ruffle and rosettes.
The side fronts and hook and eye back are boned using vintage featherbone boning.
You can check out the how-to’s I posted for each step, the projects of the 80 + other participants as they share, and lots of pictures… and a little drinking here:
We’re only half done, there’s a matching bra coming up next!
Here’s a link to the pattern used:
Vintage 1940’s satin, 1960’s lace, satin bias binding, boning, hook and eye tape
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
