Fargo, North Dak...
My first ever corset with spiral boning and a busk! i used the Truly Victorian 1880s corset pattern and modified it to be an overbust. The busk went in very easily and while using a hammer to set the grommets was more of a pain in the butt than using my eyelet pliers, the two-part grommets are so nice and sturdy. I made bias binding out of the fashion fabric so it would match…it gets a bit twisty in parts, i’ve never been able to keep this from happening unfortunately. It also isn’t cinched up as far as it will go, since my boyfriend is locked up in a medical study and wasn’t there to lace it for me, so this was as good as i could get it on my own!
faux silk for the fashion layer and a canvas-type material for the strength layer (ok, so maybe it’s not considered “real” yet since i didn’t use coutil…)
4 flat steel bones by the grommets, the rest are spiral steel. one 14 inch busk, and 26 grommets.
