Corset in progress...

Saturday, February 6, 2010

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.
