Here are some pictures of my corset in progress:
|Corset front and back layed together|
Cut the pieces to make the two layers of the corset. Sew them so that you have two separate corsets. Line them up and lay them on top of each other.
|Paths to hold boning|
Sew lines from the top of the corset to the bottom, creating a path for the boning to run through. Cut your boning and round the edges. Slide all the boning pieces into place.
|Baste edges to keep boning in place|
Baste the top and bottom edges of the corset to keep the boning in place (some types of boning can be sewn right over- this keeps them from shifting).
|Corset almost done|
This is the corset before the finishings.
At this point, you can simply add the binding and grommets to be done.
To cover the corset with a fancy fabric:
|Pieces for top corset layer|
|Putting grommets on the corset|
I will post pictures of us all decked out when I get home from the wedding.
As we say in Guatemala... Nos Vemos!
