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
4 weekly drawings, including a Grand Prize valued at more than $4,000!
