Fashion DIY Tutorial: Handmade Denim Corset Belt

In my last DIY project “An Old Denim Jacket As A Bolero” the lower part remained of the denim jacket. From this fabric remnant I have made a corsage belt (or bodice).

  1. Pins
  2. Sewing kit or sewing machine
  3. Seam ripper

Tip

Fashion DIY Tutorial: Handmade Denim Corset Belt - Sewing tip for beginners - Select Straight Stitch

Sewing tip for beginners: Select the position “Straight Stitch” for the best way of sewing. So, if something got too close, you just can remove the seams and make a new sewing.

DIY Step 3 Sew Along The Pins

Sew along the pins. Then cut the fabric to about 1 cm from the seam. Seam the borders to prevent a fraying of the fabric.

DIY Step 4 Sew The Upper Edge Provisionally

Provisionally sew the upper edge with thread and needle. The bottom hem has a slightly darker wash (cause of the removed waist band). As I wanted this look, I didn’t seam this edge. If you don’t like it, even sew the bottom hem temporarily.

One More Tip

Fashion DIY:  Handmade Denim Corset Belt - sewing tip for beginners: put some remnants under the presser foot

Sewing Tip: To sew thick or multi-layer fabrics (such as jeans) put some remnants under the presser foot as a “bridge”. Thus the thick fabric easily can be sewed from the beginning.

DIY Step 5 Sew The Hem

DIY Tutorial – Final Result “Handmade Denim Corset Belt”

Here you see the final result. I was pleased by the “bow tie”-pin as decoration well fitting the “Sailor” look. As already mentioned, I liked the dark wash, so I didn’t seam my corset at the bottom.

    Love this idea, can also elongate a shirt by adding this to a top and bottom choice material, which I might be doing directly. Thanks for the inspiration.
