I bought this pattern a little while ago, and have been procrastinating over making it up. I serviced my sewing machine, and it actually raises neat little stitches again. No more leather sewing. Bad Suzan. Bad. Very Bad.
So. I got my bum into gear, copied the pattern and tried to make head and tail of it, which in fact, it’s rather easy. It uses the traditional French Seam and a beautifully crafted pattern that gives the corset an AMAZING shape!
I will do a coutil one – this is simply too nice to leave as a cotton drill test drive.
I have put it on for you to have a look. I am sorry it’s not laced tightly around my ribs. They think I have pneumonia again. :-(
You can see from the front shot that it’s loose around the ribs. I think it will lace on perfectly after seasoning. Coutil version will be a lot stronger than this one. :-)
