About backtobusk

I have spent a few years of being lost in flow of life but after a night of Intoxication spent staring at the Burlesque tent at a festival, Ive realised I really used to like to do sewing and making corsets. This is going to be an attempt to document my re interation into the world of a being a seamstress.

    I love this, it looks great on you and I can tell that you look very pleased with it. Did you use a coutil for the outer fabric? If so, where did you get a fab printed coutil? If not, what did you use and do you feel that it’s strong enough?

      Thanks, I did use coutil, which I got from vena cava ( ), I think its strong enough, I personally prefer double layer corsets and would adapt the pattern to have two layer next time. theres some wrinkling which is a shame I think I need to stich closer to the bones to prevent that.
