This is the second corset garter I've made, and the second time around is just as good as the first!

Excellent So much fun to sew  June 5, 2012

Words cannot describe the joy I got from putting this together. On one hand, it was a challenge since I had to size it down (the smallest size is 29" waist, mine happens to be 26"), but it was great to see the finished corset come together beautifully. I already have another one in the works!

I love, love, love this pattern! It's incredibly versatile, and really lends itself to customization. Very few, minor adjustments and this baby fit like a glove. I can't wait to make another one!
