In an overbust they give me a place to rest my chin!  I'd rather people check out my corset than boobs the size of cantaloupes pouring over the top!

And your sig made me crack up!  I just got a new pair of gingher shears yesterday (yay for half off coupons at Joann!  Less than $20!), and those things put my old fiskars to shame.  I already managed to snip the edge of my thumb!  My roommate looked at me like I was insane since I screamed "noooo!" as I threw my hand in the air and jumped two feet back from the corset I was working on (for someone else!  that would be nice... here you go, don't mind the blood splatters!!)

I so agree with the not wanting a chin rest.  That's one thing that irritates me to no end:)  And ouch!  If those are the shears that I got a while back, they are definately good at cutting the thick fabric, but again, OUCH on the thumb!  Anything I sew seems get get the sacrifice (but thankfully doesn't get ON the fabric), so let me tell you, the crochet that I have been doing lately scares me...no blood-letting with the dull hooks yet:)

This (and you) are absolutley gorgeous!!

I'm curious as to where you get your boning material.  Local?? Or internet??  I need to get some for this year's halloween costumes (yes, I do know it's only Feb) and I'm sure you're more in the know on this than I am.  Last two corsets I made, I used wire coathangers.  Sure they work in a pinch, but I'm thinking this costume is going to take me two months or so, therefore I'm hoping to make the boning a bit more quality.

Cause happy is what happens when all your dreams come true.  Well, isn't it?

Your work is amazing!
I would love to have the time and patience to put into a well-made corset...perhaps when I get my body back, I'll give it a go... In the meantime, I just dream of owning (and being able to wear) such items Smiley

I like the design on the last one, but they all look great!

Ooh, beauty upon beauty. Your boning tips help, too, because we do need more support. I prefer the underbust as well. Gorgeous as always.
