Halloween Waist Snatcher - All tied up

I had the sudden need to add a waist snatcher/cincher or ridding corset to my costume this year. I used the same fabric as my new hat and made it reversible with leftover black and gold curtain fabric from my Steampunk outfit of many years ago. I ran out of time so one side’s binding was hand-finished and then topstitched but the other side was quickly topstitched down and needs a bit of ripping and redoing, but the black side looked good! I used the pattern recommended by Shannon Makes and mostly followed her instructions using zip ties for the boning. I went down a size from my practice one and it was too small so I made my own busk-like front panel. The whole thing really added to the costume.


Wow, looks great!

How fun! Love the gold and black!

You were for sure the best dressed witch in the parking lot!
