First corset  

It is made from several different fabrics, giving it a light patchworky feel.

As you can see, it is a front lacing underbust, because I made the mockup a back laced one and it was a pain.  No busk because I am poor/cheap  :3  I drafted the pattern myself, after lurking here for a few months and getting a general feel for how corsets are supposed to look.

Bit of a close up.  I really like all of the fabrics I used.  I feel much more curvy and sexy in this in IRL than I appear in these pictures.

The inside, very messy and probably wont last long.  That's ok though, since it's my first one, I gave myself permission not do everything super perfect.  The bones are thick cable ties.

My measurements without the corset are underbust 28, waist 28, and hips 40, and with the corset fully closed (as pictured) my waist is 24.

There are also some pictures of my crazy metal corset there.  You should go look.  :3

All those patterns together give it such a cool funky look. Nice.

They didnt take took long, especially when you are just hanging out with friends and chatting as you do them. :)

Very cool, I would love that over an off white dress, so that the sutle patterns could stand out.

Oh, that is very nicely done. And the eyelets are great! I love stitched eyelets, but usually do them on my machine.

I love the steel corset. It really is something! :D

And the pincurls were cute! ;)

Cheers! That a great shape on you. I like that you did a before and after corset shot in your flicker. It's super curvy!

The steel garment looks very Boris Vallejo. Super.
