Introduction: How to Make a Corset
For the detailed video, watch below:
Step 1: Corset Pattern
1. Check out our blog for detailed instructions on how to make your own corset pattern. Once you have your pattern made, decide what fabric you want to use for the liner and outer shell. Take your pattern, lay it on your fabric and carefully pin it down.
Step 2: Cut Out the Pattern
2. Now, cut it out an inch outside the pattern for seam allowance. If you need to, trace around the pattern with a fabric crayon where you need to cut it so you know exactly where to sew.
Step 3: Making the Liner
3. Flip the fabric over and cut out another panel. Then repeat for the liner pieces.
Step 4: Sewing the Liners
4. Next take out one outer piece and one liner piece, place them right sides together and pin. Sew a seam following the pattern line you traced, but leave a gap so you can turn it inside out.
Step 5: Sew the Seam
5. Now fold in the gap seam and sew it closed while sewing a top seam around the entire panel.
Step 6: Measure the Holes for Eyelets
6. Take a ruler, place it about an inch in from the front seam and line your eyelets up along the ruler every inch on the inch. Make sure they straight and use a fabric pencil to mark where they go.
Step 7: Cut Holes
7. Now cut holes for every mark you made, but don't cut them too big. Next, insert an eyelet into the hole from the right to wrong side. Place the right side over the anvil and insert the tool over the eyelet, then hammer gently.
Step 8: Repeat
8. Repeats those steps for the rest of the holes. Then repeat on the other panel.
Step 9: Connect the Panels
9. Place the panels right side together and sew a seam to connect them.
Step 10: Congrats! You're Done!
