using home decor fabrics for the edwardian corset

Postby gretagretchen » Wed Jun 27, 2012 9:59 pm

because my husband is the president of a furniture company, I get a lot of home decor fabric samples. Some of these seem like they could be sturdy enough for a corset.

I need to make the Edwardian Corset fairly quickly and I was thinking of maybe giving one of these a shot.

Do you have any thoughts?

It would depend on the fabric, but if you have a firm weave that is not overly bulky, I don't see a problem. Though personally, if you can find a canvas type fabric, that would be fine too.

I've done two corsets (cotton lined plum and silk lined ivory) in a 50/50 poly cotton home dec fabric from JoAnn's, both of the same fabric but different colors. They both work very well.
