Corset – hooks&eyes or Busk

Dragana2 | Posted in General Sewing Info on

Hello sewing friends,

I want to attempt to make a leather corset.

I have seen metal busks(?) – I think that is what they are called. Has anyone put these in? Can I get instructions from someone?

The Hook and Eye Tape looks easier. I want the opening a the front.

Does anyone have any suggestions, advice or just feedback?

You are my loyal trusted sewing friends.

    There is a site called Costumer's Manifesto.  Google that and you will see a list; click on corsets and underwear--continue in this way and you will find a lot of information.  Caution:  This is a scholarly site and scholarly does not always mean genteel.  There are pictures that are definitely PG!  There are instructions and order sources and definitely more than you want to know about corsets.  Galey
