Central Coast, A...
Sooooooo, this is the second corset using the pattern from my 1st self drafted corset.
I made the necessary alteration to the measurements and also altered the pattern to cup my ribs and hips a little more.
I also add hip pads to this corset for my sensitive hip bones, and put in the full length of boning over the hips.
Bias binding was sewn on differently so there was no stitching visible where the binding was sewn on.
Made a bit of a boo boo finishing the ends of the bias binding, they aren’t straight :-( oooh well better keep an eye on that next time.
So far the hip pads are comfortable, no discomfort or pain :-)
I also forgot to add a waist tape this time, should be fine considering I haven’t got any major waist reduction going on at the moment.
