ElfWish corset

Added Jul 28, 2011

Bodø, Norway






A second corset which I made today… I like to make them without bones (is that the correct word for it?) , because bones usually make them too “old fashioned” in my opinion.

It took me a few hours to make, but it’s really easy. Though, as you probably can see, I’m not good at “hiding” seams.

Material Notes

Golden eyelets




Garment Type

      That’s awesome! I’m guessing you have a lot of work ahead then.
      I’ve been looking for patterns, but never found any.
      I hope you’ll upload pictures on your studio from the process.

    The term is actually “boning” but bones works. :D The corset looks very lovely. Too bad there isn’t a model to model it.

      Yes, I remembered it after I had uploaded the project :p hehe. Thanks for letting me know :)

      Thank you so much :D I’m glad you liked it!
      Yes, too bad. I made the corset for my sister, but she is always busy so that’s why I have no model…
