This is my second underbust corset project made using the Laughing Moon Underbust Corset pattern, this time I made a ribbon corset.
The panels are PVC backed onto coutil and rather than satin ribbons I used printed cotton ribbon. I have picked out the angles of the ribbons using satin and grosgrain ribbon attached with basic hand embroidery. The lining is cotton.
I learnt a lot making this, especially that PVC is a tough fabric to work with – totally unforgivable, un-ironable and cannot be pinned easily. This may be the last time I use it!
I also found out that my 1923 Singer is the best for boning channels and doesn’t get stuck to the PVC like my modern machine. It is my new best friend.
