Ribbon corset part 1: starting

Ribbon corset
*A little update*

As I had other things on my mind during the summer (a crazy, funny, delicious summer holiday in Portugal) I didn't had time to make a corset.

But finally.... I bought some very nice ribbon for the ribbon corset. The color is difficult to describe, but it's a skin colored ribbon with a touch of gold through it. A beautiful wedding color if I may say so.

New corset
Okay! Since it's almost summer holiday for me, I need to get a summer project going. And what better way to spend a summer on what I love to do most: making corsets.

So obviously I'm going to make a corset for the summer.

Tickle me!Collapse )

Happy New Year!
First I want to say Happy New Year to everybody. I hope you will find peace and happiness in 2012.

For my projects, I've not been working on them as I've had a surgery. I'm still recovering and it will take another couple of weeks to recover. So for the coming time I won't be doing any projects. But when I'm fully recovered, I'll be working on my projects again!

Copying the pattern
Now the pattern is taped together, I can trace all the pattern pieces.

Pattern scaling
Ok, so the first step is to decide which pattern you will use. As I already did that it's time to scale them up. I found these patterns in an online museum catalogue. Sadly they aren't the original size, so I have to scale them up.

My next project will be....
A winter coat. At least I'll start with that as I have not much to do anyway. You could see two pictures of which coats I really liked in my previous post. If you haven't seen them yet, they will be in this post again.

Ok time for a cut!

Corset making, garters
After I figured out how to make the garters, I decided to give it a go. First I wanted to cover them up in satin, but as I didn't had enough satin left I decided not to do that.
