Diseased Swiss

The Swiss aren't really diseased. I made this tunic top for my Mum a little while ago for a Mother's Day gift. Unfortunately it was a couple days late...I was sewing it at school... The material is dotted swiss, which I found at JoAnn's. There's actually OK fabric there sometimes....

Sorry there hasn't been an update for awhile, first my phone broke (and I use to take all these lovely pictures at odd angles) and then I was just too lazy. But now I'm back!

I'm in clothing at my high school, and we only have to make four projects a year....but I finished with them, so basically, I can make whatever I want. So I decided to make a corset out of old magazine pages, fusible interfacing, lining, and tape.

I used a Simplicity pattern. First, I fused interfacing to the magazine pages, then sewed them to lining, and sewed the pieces together in reverse flat felled seams. Then I covered the whole thing with clear packing tape. Yup. There are eyelets in the back and it's laced up with ribbon.

The project was pretty successful, but the eyelets come out and because it's so stiff it doesn't curve in to fit my bust very well. But whatever. According to my teacher, I'm her little pioneer. xD Or I'm just a weirdo.
