First go at corset making, just to practise creating something closely fitting and boned. I used the free Jacci Jaye pattern (here on Burdastyle) for an underbust and some curtain/upholstery fabric remnants that I had been given. Not sure if/when I will wear it, but it seems to have worked quite well.
Fabric is strong and synthetic, satin bias binding. 1″ × 8″ busk, silver 5 mm eyelets/grommets, lacing, spiral steel boning, flat steel boning.
One of the most beloved American designers passed last night. We look back at a few of his designs.
