I used denim as fabric for the corset, and made the red ribbon by hand.
The project is based on a BurdaStyle pattern.
As you can see, I’ve had to repair the corset several times – see the eyelets? When I managed to attach the eyelets to the fabric, the fabric started to unravel, and I had to sew it together over and over again almost for each eyelet I attached. And since my sewing machine is broken, I did this part by hand.
