Ohh La La Pin Up Sew Along... Preparing Your Center Back Pieces - Eyelet Version

Sunday, February 26, 2012


For Corsets that will lace, iron your interfacing on the wrong side of your self fabric. If you are not using a lining of any sort trim back your interfacing piece by 1/2".




Place your lining over top, and fold your facing over approximately ½”, and again 1 ½”, so you have something that looks like this. Press into place!


Stitch along the edge of your facing. Stitch another row ⅜” in from that (towards the center back), and a 3rd row of stitching ⅜” in from your center back line. You will now have 2 casings for bones, on either side where your eyelets will go. This will reinforce your eyelets and prevent them from pulling or popping out.



You should now have a something that looks like a corset. Here's what the inside of mine looks like, flat lined. Neat and tidy!
