From Renaissance to the 21st Century

Project Description

What are you most proud of? All of it, really What advice would you give someone starting this project? Corsets aren't difficult if you have the basic sewing skills well-grounded, but they are very time-comsuming and you have to be very precise at every stage, from fitting to eyelet punching. There are some really good books and videos on the market if you look hard enough. It's also very rewarding :-).

What you will need

  • Velvet
  • bull denim
  • metal corset bones
  • bias binding
  • metal eyelets
  • corset laces.

Q&A with TallyPendragon

nitared66 asked:
THis is gorgeous! Where in the world did you find that printed velvet?
TallyPendragon answered:
In a tiny little back street old style shop in Camden Town, London, about 20 years ago when I was at college. The shop doesn't exist now. It was going really cheap in the sale too, and I wish I'd bought up the remainder, but I only had enough money for a couple of yards!
