Default Corset Top Tutu Dress

I was wondering if any of you had tips on making a corset top with the 5.5" crochet hb? I've made several regular tops but think the corset back is so cute!

One more question too...

Do any of you sew together two headbands to make a longer length top? I've got tons of these headbands from a gb that I haven't had the chance to use yet!

I'm not sure on how to make the corset back, but for a longer length, Future Industries (I believe that is their name) on eBay sales 8.5in tops.

I made my youngest DD a pirate costume for Halloween in 2009. I know this isn't exactly what you were referring to as this was only a half tutu and I made the corset part in the front with a shirt underneath but I though maybe this could give you a general idea....

All I did was cut the headband so that it was one long strip then I laced it up with 3/8 ribbon.

You can only kind of see it in these pictures but maybe this can help you out!

This is exactly what I am referring to! I just cut one apart earlier today and have lots of raveled edges and stringies. Did you just trim these off and lace it up or did you re-sew the raw edges or seal them somehow? Yours looks really neat and clean.

Very cute costume by the way!!
