Bra-A-Week : Harlot Suspender Corset
I cut this corset out at the same time that I cut out the Angel Underbust from last week, so I didn’t know that the patterns tend to run a little on the lager size, so this pattern is also a little roomy on me, but it does make for a very comfortable wearing corset! And I love the shape of the top of this corset- perfect for making a matching bra!
I really love the way that this corset turned out, and the fabric- which looks so rich and beautiful! It’s amazing how much your fabric can influence the look and feel of your corset! I’m so happy I have some of this left over, I’ll definitely be making another corset with it!
I also like how high this corset comes in the back, it’s super flattering and you don’t have to worry about any spilling over the top when you’re lacing it tight!
Karin made her ‘Gentleman Skull Corset’ for her lovely step-daughter to wear this Halloween! How cool is that!! <3 <3
She made it using this piece of fabric and some strategic pattern placement, with both of the full sized skeletons being placed on the back panels. Halloween being my favourite holiday you can imagine how in love I am with this corset! Make sure you head over to Karin’s blog to read all about it!
Next we have a super sparkly corset from Rachel of Ivy Rose Designs
Remember Rachel’s beautiful bra from last week? Well here is her gorgeous corset to match! And what a lovely set in that sparkly galaxy fabric!
This is a self-drafted pattern, with a solid panel centre front, no busk, and a nice peak in the centre following perfectly with the matching bra! What a lovely silhouette, that will definitely make for a stunning outfit on a fun night out!
Next we have another gorgeous submission from Sian of Rebel Angel
This is Sian’s first corset, and she used a kit and pattern from Sew Curvy in the beautiful underbust style!
She used a single layer of coutil- and wow- look at the waist-training power of this corset- really gorgeous shape! And an excellent first corset too! Make sure to head over to Sian’s blog to read her post all about the making of this beauty!
Next we have a beautiful bra submission from our favourite french man Joël!!
Joël has taken a luxurious summer off biking in the country with his wife in the sunshine 🙂 But now it’s back behind the sewing machine creating beautiful things 🙂
This is a two colour bra made with satin crèpe and a gorgeous lace! Don’t you love the detailing on the straps too! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- your wife is a very lucky woman!
And last but not least we have another halloween inspired corset from Maddy of Miss Maddy Sews!
Maddy made this bra using the plunge corset pattern from Scarlett in her Corset Making Express Course, and some heavy weight black cotton lining, with a shinier black fashion exterior.
An then she added the fun bit! She combined her passion of medicine (from her studies) with her sewing passion and added appliqué ribs to her corset! How cool is that! Make sure you head over to Maddy’s blog to read all about her super awesome corset make, and to wish her luck on her upcoming exams!!
What a fantastic finale for Corset October- I really couldn’t have wished for a better corset turn out! You have all made such stunning things! And I’m happy to see that I’m not the only one who was bitten with the corset bug! These four definitely won’t be my last!
