I thought I’d start off my new blog by harking back to one of my first ever corset makes.
A long time friend had heard of my desire to start making corsetry, and was incredibly supportive. She did a lot of role-play and was looking for someone to make her a new corset for her outfit and this is the result! This was made before I’d even gone on any corsetière training or courses so it was very trying at times, with the limited resources and information that I had acquired at that point.
I’m amazed that, as my first piece, it fitted so well – I do recall that I has so many issue with how to figure out how to attach the fake buckles to the front of the corset, that they were all assembled and attached with hand sewing! Its made from a black vegan suede fabric, and black cotton coutil with spiral steel boning. Id managed to find a good supplier of coutil and boning in the UK that I still use now, and it was though her, that I found out about the training courses she offered. Not long after making this first corset, I saved my pennies and paid for several courses and quite simply, I haven’t looked back since!
