Making Elizabeth’s Corset from BioShock Infinite

bioshock elizabeth costume

Elizabeth’s white corset and blue skirt from BioShock Infinite has been popular with cosplayers ever since the game was released. Instructables user Kion Designs made the ensemble and wrote a how-to for the corset. I never tire of seeing how corsets come together – they have so many parts! She used a historical pattern and then fashioned the corset with taffetta, muslin, ribbon, rivets, and more. Her first steps (after studying reference images) are as follows:

Transfer and cut out all pieces of the pattern twice and from all 3 fabrics. You should have 36 pieces in complete now; 12x muslin, 12x lining,12x fabric.
Sew fabric by fabric together and line them up: lining, muslin, taffeta (picture 2).

Use black satin ribbon to create the slots and the decor for the corsetts boning. Be sure to have anough space in between the stitches to fit in the bones and seal both ends of each trimmed bone either with the metal clips made for it or, as I were given the cheaper advice, with some hot glue glue. (picture 3-5).

Stack all 3 layers per side onto each other: lining, muslin, taffeta on top.
