I cut up Cosmo magazine, and made a corset. The pattern is Simplicity 2966. It gives you the directions how to make the “green” corset, as well as other corset patterns that I plan to make very soon! :)
I had so much fun finding pictures and words to make my corset, and just making it in general.
Unlike the pattern directs, I put a clear cover over my magazine pages after they had been ironed to the interfacing, so that they wouldn’t get damaged.
It’s a little weird to wear, because it’s slighlty stiff. But I’ll have to manage, because I love it!
Interfacing, a magazine, lining, thread, eyelets, double sided bias tape, clear plastic cover (or thick packaging tape will work), ribbion, and an imagination!
