Aw, I feel like I've been neglecting Craftster lately! But I've been extra busy crafty-wise, so I think that totally makes up for it.

So, I actually got this finished last August, the night before my local(-ish) Faire started back up. It wasn't really meant to be Renaissance accurate [it's more of a Victorian with added shoulder support], I just wanted something new to wear.

Updated Corset Details
-Silk dupion outer layer with contrast silk charmeuse for handmade piping and binding
-Cotton canvas strength layer and medium weight linen lining
-1/2" steel boning, gold tone busk and antiquated copper grommets

The model wearing the corset is not me, and thus not the person it was intended for, so some wrinkles are created, and it's a little gapped in the back... But I think it looks alright anyway.

The reason I've named it Toffifay is because the combination of the chocolate brown charmeuse and the bronze-y dupion remind me of the chocolate and caramel in Toffifay candies. Mmm.

That's gorgeous!
Wow, I've been inspired to go jump in way over my head and try to make a corset!
This is so gorgeous! (Again because I can't think of a better way to say it)
Cheesy Fantastic job!

Beginning of school year resolutions: Granny-square blanket, scarf for the man, swimsuit bottoms, better organization for crafting supplies, computer case of some kind, 2 amigurumi and a pair of underwear.

i really like the color and style of this corset. You did a great job constructing it, and I don't think it looks bad on the model either. I hope you had fun wearing it to the faire!!
