Cinderella Corset

Finished the first step toward my Cinderella costume, the corset!

I've had problems with making corsets over the years, due to trying to make them for years on a dress form not my size (they don't seem to make them small enough) and my own lack of skill at the time, but I've learned a lot since my previous attempts. I'm still having trouble with the bust shaping since none of the resource material specifies how to pattern for petite figures, so since this is a fantasy genre, I felt safe in working an old bra into the corset body instead. I used the articles at to form the base pattern for this (flat patterning using math, how about that) and had made a couple fitting drafts to tweak my shaping.

Overall, I'm pretty happy with it, it is the most comfortable corset I've made to date because I was able to work in room for my ribs and I still get down to a 23" waist. It's made with duck cloth, and everything is materials I had on hand. I promised myself since the other corsets that I wouldn't waste time making a corset 'pretty' with flossing and cording and whatnot until I was 100% the fit was perfect. I know I want to tweak the back so the gap is even on the hips, so I might make one again at a later date and pay more attention to detail. For now, I can start working on the rest of my dress!

***PLEASE NOTE: My work is not 'cosplay', it is costuming. Costuming is the art of creating costumes and designing a character look. 'Cosplay' is the activity of role playing while in costume, which not an activity I participate in, and is often confused for costuming.. Please only refer to my work as Costuming. Thank you for your understanding.***
