I didn't have enough time to finish my Victorian lady costume. So Victorian whore it was!

I'm rather pleased with it, actually. It was my first real corset!



The back of the corset.



Full back. (That's the chemise poking out of the top!)



A detail of the bloomers I made. (You can use this pattern to make your own-- http://www.coletterie.com/colette-patterns-news/free-pattern-to-download-the-madeleine-mini-bloomers)



Me looking dower with the full costume.

The corset looks fantastic!  I may need to make a pair of bloomers for myself, thank you for including the link.  Great job on some period undies!   Wink

I've made these bloomers but yours are so much more adorable with that sweet pink satin!
