Almost reversible bunny playsuit

I seemed to lose some weight between doing at toile for this and then finalsing it… Anyway, the main fabric was upholstery and therefore has quite a thick backing/facing. I used my toile as interlining too and then I used a red linen fabric as the lining which I hand stitched in.

I didn’t really follow any instructions at all and I have to admit I hated the shaping around the bottom of the playsuit. I very nearly gave up entirely to just make it into a zipped corset. But I perservered and this is just about ok. I had to make massive changes though to the line around the buttocks (mine is a lot more thing like in the end)

The red linen looks nice worn as an outer so I think I will make one up in that fabric. If I had realised it would look ok, I would have taken more time to cut away the seams inside (as it stands, you can see them bulging out so you couldn’t really wear it on the red side I don’t think).

All in all relatively happy with it, but a complete pain to sort out that leg and hip line though. It’s M 7398 by McCalls

    My friend wants a corset for a wedding next month and came to me for advice (ha, ha…) I explained her that I was definetely not the right person, I strongly discouraged her and at the end I showed her your creations ! You are a master…

      Ahhh!! Thank you Elpida! I am definitely hooked on making them now. I used to love wearing them too but never imagined I’d be able to make one myself. This one was a bit of a pain but it looks nice!! :)

      Thanks Mary!! And yes- I actually prefer the red which is annoying as I will have to make one now. But I’ll leave off the panty part I reckon as it was a right palava!! x
