One of the big adventurous I embarked on this year was to make a corset. Or in my case, I made two! I have always loved corsets and a friend of mine said I should make one of my own. They are not very complicated. They are just very time consuming. I was up for the challenge.
At first, I didn't think I was going to be able to create one on my own. I read the instructions and researched various corsetry sites in order to familiarize myself with the sewing processes. The first corset I made was very frustrating. I made a lot of mistakes but in the end, it turned out great even with its little flaws. The second corset was much easier to make and looked awesome! I figured out the correct way to stitch and it made all the difference!
My corsetry journey was a fun one. I am so very happy I embarked on it. It is something I will definitely do again in the future. After all, Halloween comes every year and I love to dress up for it!
