Flesh Tone

Central Coast, A...






Another Corset to add to my growing collection :-D
I decided to try external boning channels this time. I’m only part way through the first break-in session so can’t say just yet if it’ll be comfortable, but so far it’s great! :-D
I used a pattern this time from http://corsettraining.net/ I used the Angel Underbust pattern.
I made a few adjustments, reducing waist, all over vertical and adding a few cm’s for my shoulders and booty. I ended up taking a little extra off the top front two panels, as I added a little too much.
I cut all my own boning channels from left over flesh coloured coutil, a first for me :-D usually I used already made boning channels. This was a bit fiddly, but worth it.
Also another first, a modesty placket on the bottom and top of the busk.
I also didn’t plan the flossing on this one, on purpose. I gave my self a little exercise on coming up with flossing to see what would happen. I am happy with the results, it’s something a little different, which I like :-D

    I’m loving this corset the flossing is amazing I wonder if it was hard doing that. I’ve not tried flossing yet.

      It was a little hard as some of the boning channels sit over the seams, so I’m sewing through up to 5 layers of coutil. But I found using a thimble and quilters grips (like rubber thimbles) to help ALOT!! But I must say I do enjoy my flossing!!! :-D It can be addictive :-D

      Thank you Helguchi :-D It’s not broken-in yet so it’s not fitting 100% perfectly just yet, the waist will be a little tighter. Keep sewing and learning and you’ll be able to put your mind to what ever you want to make! :-D I know I’m still learning, but I love it and it’s fun! :-D

      I can’t wait to see your corset all finished. Corsets are my favorite garments ever. Can’t wait to gain more skill to start making them.
      Thank you so much for the links. I really appreciate.
