Thought I would share my projects from Corset October 2015. This was the second corset I made, an underbust corset using the Freedom Corset Pattern from PUG patterns.
For this pattern I used heavy weight cotton twil with this lightweight rayon print over top, and for binding.
I used a 5 hook busk in the front (I'm quite long waisted!) and for the boning I used medium weight plastic 1/4" boning, for all of the bone, except for the bones on either side of the grommets in the back, for those I used heavy-weigth plastic bones.
I made this one up in size D reducing to C at the waist (fully laced it's supposed to reduce my waist from it's natural 29 all the way to a 24! wowza!)
This was a very special fabric to me- it's the fabric I used in a collection I designed for a charity fashion show in University :) and this was the last bit I had left :) I love it :)
