I made something that's a bit different from things I normally do, so I thought I'd share it here:

An old friend of mine talked me into making her a Wonder Woman outfit for her for Halloween.  She is 5' tall and a 40G, so this of course meant making a Wonder Woman corset!  In retrospect, I think I should have moved the emblem up farther on the front, but otherwise I'm quite happy with how it turned out.  The corset is made out of sparkly red upholstery vinyl and two layers of heavy twill for strength.  The bones are sandwiched between the strength layers.  The vinyl was a complete PITA, needing tissue paper strips laid down on top of it on every single line of top stitching so it would go through the machine smoothly.  Does anyone know of something better for this?  Tear-away interfacing maybe?  If I wasn't using an industrial I'd try a walking foot.  : /
