Corset in progress...


I've started to cut and sew! I'm on my way...

It's very difficult to test fit on Eddie (my mannequin) because corsets are so fitted. A persons' body is so much softer than a dressforms'. There's no way to tighten a mannequins waist with a corset in the same way that a human waist would respond. I guess I'll have to find a victim to cinch into this thing to see if it works!

Now I have the press all the seams and make channels to insert boning. Pleather doesn't usually like heat so wish me luck in applying an iron to my corset.
