last night I had a sudden thought to make this too large corset that I had lying around into a corset with swallowtails..(I'm not quite familiar with my terminology. Although experienced sewers would probably want to hit me for more than this issues in my post)
I took this corset and cut off it from the back where the boning was.
then I cut out 4 strips
the 2 shown here will be the front strips.
I choose this velvet/faux suede material (again. forgive my lack of knowledge of fabrics) on purpose because I hate hemming
and it has nice structure that would fall quite nicely for this design
this is the 2 front strips and the 2 back strips
here I placed all the fabric according to the position that I needed to sew them in.
for the back pieces, I decided I needed a zipper but you don't need it if you don't want
now, you should have 2 sides on the front piece that will connect with the the 2 sides from the back.
measure place your grommets then use ribbon and lace them up
I love how this project I didn't have to measure anything because the ribbon makes things adjustible! (unless somehow u made things too big...)
here is what you should have
I sewed an extra piece of black fabric under the front lace up because I thought that it might be too much with 3 lace up sections.
and DONE ~
