Altering a corset?
I have a steel-boned underbust corset that I really like, except that the fit isn't quite right, it's a little too long for my torso. This makes it look pretty weird with certain bras. So I was thinking, I could just remove the seam binding on the top edge of the corset, hack off an inch of height all the way around, then sew it back together, and it would fit perfect! It seems simple enough in my head, but I'm kind of nervous to try it. The corset wasn't terribly expensive (~$50) so if I ruined it I wouldn't be heart-broken, but I'd rather not have to buy a replacement. Has anyone else ever attempted corset surgery? Would you recommend it?
