Corset Pattern Finally Available!

I know I've been promising a corset tutorial for a really, REALLY long time.  I feel bad making those who have requested it wait so long.  I just want them to be as clear as I can get them, so there isn't any frustration.  Well, good news!  I've got one finally available on Etsy!



This is the pattern for my Gusseted Corset.  It is much simpler to fit/alter than the other paneled ones.  Besides being a wee more complicate to weave, it really is easier to get a good fit.  Just know that it will set you back about 2000 tabs.  That's close to a half of a gallon worth.


I'm so happy that Etsy is now offering "Instant Digital Downloads". No more waiting for me to setup and send file links after transaction. You ge the files as soon as payment is complete. So, that means I also won't have to watch my inbox 24/7. Though, I probably will anyway. :)  So, anyone who tries the instant dl, let me know how your experience goes.  If I need to switch it back to manual, I'm happy to do so.  YOu can find the corset pattern at :

I do still plan to make the paneled corset patterns available to those who want them, but I'm still fussing with the alteration instructions.  I also have plans for including a pattern for a simple waist cincher.  Look for that to be available soon.  (And, this time I MEAN very soon.)  :)

  1. This is beautiful! I just started getting into tabistry (purses etc) and thought...this would make a really cool corset. I googled poptop corsets (not expecting to find anything) and there your beautiful corset was and even with a pattern! Im so excited to make this. Thank you for taking the time to share with the public. I appreciate it so much :) Amishi

    1. Thank you so much for commenting, Amishi! And, you're very welcome. :) I was amazed by what I found online after making my own first pieces. I love that others are getting interested in pop tab art. If you need any advice making things, I'm happy to help however I can. And, we'd love to see your projects. Good luck and have fun!

    1. Yes, I increased it. Thanks for the heads up. Had no idea it would sell out so quickly all at once. :) Sorry for any inconvenience.

  6. This corset is beautiful! I would like to make it for a costume to wear at Dragon Con. I could not purchase the pattern and instructions on Etsy. When will they be available again? Thanks!

    1. Thank you, Christi. I'm having difficulties with Paypal and Etsy due to the popularity of the tutorials. Hope to have it resolved as soon as possible. I'll post on this blog and on facebook when it is available again.

      Thanks for the patience,
      Mieljolie

    1. I've set up a store through Etsy to make the tutorials available by instant download. So far, it's been working really well. Internationally, I can only accept Paypal at the moment. I used to accept CC on Etsy, but have hit a snag there.
