Central Coast, A...
Finally! I sat down and drafted a corset from scratch using my own method for drafting. Got it a little wrong, but, it has taught me a great deal about my torso shape and what I need to look out for when drafting my next corset :-D
I gave flossing a go this time to hold the bones in place more securely and decided to shorten the bones around my hip area as it isn’t that comfortable for me (got a little wrinkling, as expected). Will try hip pads on the next corset to see what the difference is if there is any. And will fix the excess around the top to waist.
