So, I finished my wedding corset yesterday. O my o my, I really underestimated this beauty. The test corsets all came together within a day, and I was working on this for about three days. Oi vey, so friggin worth it! This thing weighs quite a bit, with over one hundred inches of metal boning, a denim stiffening layer, and a lining. Yummy! I feel like a warrior just touching this thing! The skirt is still pieces of fabric, but that will come. Oh, I could really use some advice on making a crinoline petticoat. Any help would be very appreciated!
Enough hoopla, heres some piccies!
In the making:

And some of the lining, and the modesty flap. I still need to put in eyelets, which I am a little scared to do! I will add action pics as soon as I get that done though.
Hope you like it. Don't forget, I need petticoat help! Thanks!
