Decorative outer/fashion fabric: 1 yard. You can use any durable, non-stretch woven fabric like cotton, silk, twill or linen.
Lining: 1 yard. Recommendation: Coutil (also spelled coutille) which is a woven cloth created specifically for making corsets— but any woven like cotton or cotton blend works as well; such as canvas, duck, or twill.
Busk (also spelled busque): The rigid element of a corset placed at the center front and also serves as a closure. 1 pair.
Boning: The corset pictured here has 20 spiral steel bones, you will need 2 bones / seam, as well as 4 for the back panel and 2 for the front.
Heavy-weight fusible interfacing, all-purpose thread, corset lacing, grommets, grosgrain ribbon or twill tape.
Hit the city streets in adventurous looks with utilitarian details like cargo pockets and belts.
Twists on feminine classics, like a bold patterned shift dress and pants with a racing stripe.
