Thanks to Faith from Florida for writing in and sharing some fotos of her first foray into corset making!
Faith became a corset fanatic at a young age after being exposed to bodices and stays at local Ren Faires. Although she wanted to try corseting for herself, the expense of buying a well made corset as her first piece was a bit daunting… so she decided to make one herself!
“Thanks to you,” Faith wrote, “I was able to get a well-designed pattern, a busk, grommets, and a heavier-duty boning than was offered at my local craft store. I just wanted to send in a few pictures of my first real attempt at a corset as a thank you for offering quality supplies.”
The corset pictured is Ageless Patterns # 1061: The 1891 Young Ladies Corset with a 23 inch waist. A fantastic first corset Faith, congratulations!
