What materials did you use? Remnants of curtain/furnishing fabric that were given to me by friends of my parents, very strong, synthetic. Spiral steel boning, flat steel boning, 1"x8" busk, 5mm eyelets with grommets, satin bias binding

What are you most proud of? I think the fabric looks pretty smooth and the eyelets were a lot of bashing - but all seem firm and have gone in cleanly.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Get some mini-bolt cutters to cut the spiral steel!

Love it so much! I've always wanted to try making a corset. BurdaStyle, eh? I'll have to check that out!
