Today I wanna show you how to make a feather corset.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Materials List
- corset - If you would like to make it by yourself, see "How to make a corset (quick +easy)"
- hot glue
- feathers (very soft)
- bias tape
- satin tape
Step 2: Fixing the Feathers
Start fixing the feathers with hot glue bottom-up. I have placed the feathers really close to one another because I think this looks really nice. Please work very carefully, as hot glue is really hot. Believe me.:)
Step 3: Sewing the Bias Tape
Next step is to sew the bias tape at hem. This is a little be tricky as most corsets are very stiff. Just think about the bones. I don't want you to destroy your sewing machine, so if you notice that your sewing machine doesn't work very well, carry on by hand.:)
Step 4: Lacing
I have used a satin tape for lacing, but you can also use any tape you would like. I think that a velvet tape would be look very nice as well.
I hope I have explained it fairly well. Otherwise I look forward to your questions.:)
