2014 Tweed Fairy Corset

A lovely combination of tweed fabric and silver vegan leather waist belt with matching edging with a touch of lace and embellishment thrown in. This lovely corset was quite a challenge for me. A few firsts along the way. I haven’t sewing with vegan leather before and it was an eye opener. Teflon feet are your friend. I also have never attempted to attach lace, a waist belt and trim around it under all the boning channels. It was a fun exercise and was very successful. Afterwards I went through and hand tacked further along and through the pieces. But it seems like a very good way to attach detailing by machine and minimizing handwork with increases the price quickly. Anyway onto the corset:
