  • Recycled Denim Corset Tutorial

    The methods and materials I have used for this corset are recommended only for costume use with light support on the body. If you want a traditional corset, or anything that is worn regularly or tightly laced then you will need to use much sturdier materials, like tightly woven coutil fabric and spiral or spring steel boning. If you just want to make something for show, read on!

    All the quantity’s are approximate, as the exact amount you need will depend on the size and style of your corset pattern.

  • You Will Need

    -Corset Pattern

    -Denim jeans or skirt, made from stable non stretchy fabric

    -0.5 m firm Cotton fabric for middle layer - I used good quality unbleached calico

    -0.5 m plain or printed Cotton for lining
