Plain corset top

Project Description

What are you most proud of? How even my stitching is and how well the garmet turned out. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This was a fun project to make and the good quality organic cotton I used in this was much easier to sew and much softer to wear than the cheaper thicker cotton I made the skirt from.

What you will need

  • organic cotton jersey & upholstery thread

faux nom asked:
I can't get over how well it fits you! I think the backstitch on the ribbing gives it such a finished and professional look. Nice job!
zinc6 answered:
Thanks faux nom - when I backstitched the garment together the stiches looked so nice and even I decided then to use them on the outside - glad you like them to.
amyrt asked:
Are you a practiced sewer? This is very fine work! I'm curious about the upholstery thread, since my mother-in-law has quite a bit. At least I think that's what it is. Was it a challenge to use it on the jersey?
zinc6 answered:
Hi Amyinphilly, I am a practiced sewer since joining craftsy a year ago - I have done a bit of hand sewing before that. Thank you for your compliment. I used upholstery thread as I live in Australia and the postage cost from the AC website is prohibitativly high - the button craft thread is a dual purpose upholstery thread so I was trying to get the closest match available here to what was recommended. I found the upholstery thread easy to work with and less inclined to tangle but it is thicker and thus needs a larger needle.
