Kandi corset

takeylarose 2/5/2017 05:47 am 595

I'm thinking about making a kandi corset.. Im going to Middlelands and think it would be an awesome project and the perfect venue to show it off.. The last couple years I've made backpacks to take to fests while they look super cool the straps can break if there's too much weight, etc..Anyway, has anyone made a corset or any other clothing, besides skirts or kinis? Any suggestions or helpful hints??

I'm thinking white and black with some kind of crest on the front with a lace up back OR funky multicolored pattern and lace up back.. I may include a zipper under the side as well, going to play with ideas and am open to suggestions!

I made a Vest that may be a great pattern for you to make a corset with. It holds up pretty good. I use Polyester string for my projects and i ran 3 strands through a carpet need and it holds up great. I suggest a practice piece first so you can figure out how to turn it and make it work. I wear my vest to Ren Fairs.

My suggestion would to make peyote stitch panels. Follow a normal cloth corset pattern for the sizing and shape of the panels, then stitch the panels together like you would for a bag. Best of luck to ya, and please post pictures because I would love to see this made.
