Lemon Yellow Ribbon Corset by sidneyeileen Lemon Yellow Ribbon Corset by sidneyeileen
This was the first ribbon corset I ever made, back in 2002. It is made from 2" satin ribbon, and only has boning at the sides, around the grommets, and in the busk. It has a VERY long torso (15" busk, underbust), and is made to have a 30" waist when laced. This means it would fit someone with a waist measurement of 30"-36", who was over 6 feet tall, male or female.

The corset is a reproduction Edwardian negligee corset, constructed to imitate all the details described in tailoring books and shown in historic photos. One of the big advantages of this style of corset is its versatility. Unlike other styles of corset, it is very forgiving of differences in body shape, allowing comfortable fit as long as only a couple basic measurements match.

:nod: Yup. Sewing is a long-time hobby of mine, and most of what I have made were historic costumes and corsets. If you really want to learn, it's never too late. Refurbished, used sewing machines usually aren't too expensive, but the fabric adds up. It is hard to make corsets without a good machine, though, just because you end up with a lot of layers of very heavy fabric. There are a lot of places where your average machine just can't sew through that much fabric.

Oh, I'm a guy, corsets, are a no no for me =P
I mean, as ironic as it is, finding "goth" clothes is alot harder in my area than it seems. . and, also it's easier just to make your own(cheaper too ^^)

Cheaper? That would be nice. Where I am, fabric is so expensive that most things are more expensive to make at home than buy in the store, but making it at home means I can make it exactly the way I want it.

Well, It'd still be really expensive, I mean in the long run, actually buying the clothes can't be done, they would have to be imported. There's a "Hot Topic" store in the mall that sells some things, but nothing that compares to the actual thing. If that makes sense?

It totally makes sense. I've been to Hot Topic many times, and it's all faux knockoff stuff. None of it's well-made, and if it's fetish-ish, it's definitely non-functional. I've still gotten cute stuff there from time to time anyway. There are places online where you can buy the real versions of just about anything they sell, but it's often very, very expensive - way out of my price range.

No offense, but for some reason I thought you would have no idea what hot topic even was >.> I have this habbit of assuming too much, while in the back of my head I know I'm probably wrong, I somehow manage to get this idea in my head anyway >.>

Oh wow, I love this, you've made it so well. Must've taken a while to make. The pillow pulls it off nicely as well. ;]
