I’m making corsets for my roommates, adapting a base pattern in a Jean Hunnisett book. They’re really great girls, who were kind enough to accept a stranger from craigslist into their apartment when they needed a third roommate and I needed a roof over my head. So I’m making them some cool costume-type corsets. I’ve only ever made a corset from this pattern once before, and I had alot of help with that one. Here’s hoping they turn out okay.
EDIT — Corset pieces are sewn together. Next, I need to measure them on the girls one last time. Which is an okay delay, because my Brother sewing machine has started squeaking. I’ve had it for three years, and this is the first time it’s shown any sign of needing to be oiled or cleaned. o.0
EDIT — Corsets finished months ago, received rave reviews. No pictures, as my camera was acting up at the time. I think next time I post about a sewing project, it’ll be after the project is done, and photographed. : )
For the back/support fabric I used some twill I had lying around. For my roommate M’s Corset I used a polyester print fabric. For my roommate K, I used a scrap of black suede and the remnants of a blue polyester/silk blend shirt I had lying around.
The style is cool and sporty beach wear that can be worn anywhere!
