Undercorset Belt

A new accessory for the Ren Fair! I found this pattern for an “undercorset belt”* from Steamtorium and had to give it a try. I ended up making the included pouch and fan pocket, but replaced the skirt lifters with a second, zipper pouch for cash and cards/ID. (I prefer to keep my cash and cards in a separate pouch from my phone so I don’t accidentally spill out all my valuables when I’m frequently hauling out my phone to take photos.)

For the outer fabric, I used a plain black canvas. The lining is some of my large stash of leftover quilting cotton from my Halloween quilt (which just needs to be quilted!). And, yes, that is a Supernatural pin. 😀

I took these photos without a corset so you can see the full garment, but this is an “undercorset belt”–how does it look under a corset? Well, here’s a sneak peek of my new poison-label corset (actually finished first, but not yet photographed, haha):

*Obviously, I also picked up the pattern for the teacup holster, but I don’t actually have an excuse to make it yet! I’m not really inclined to try to pack a delicate teacup and saucer for plane travel.
