I’ve been wanting to try a corset for a while, and finally was inspired when all the satin went on sale at Fabricland. This turned out pretty well, although it drove me a little crazy. Thankfully I was able to take out my frustrations by pounding all of the eyelets in! I made a lot of mistakes, but that’s how you learn! The pattern is Butterick B4254.
I think I’ll try a different style corset next time and have fun with some more decorative fabrics.
