It's absolutely beautiful and very flattering on you. I'm also glad to see the pics you and Nicole took turned out pretty swell.

Thanks everyone for the killer feedback - it feels really good especially after all the frustrating math parts of the project.

@dulcet

The corset was done in three layers... cotton twit and denim and in this sandwich layer is where I sewed the channels for the bones. And then the outer layer of cotton twill that I did the embroidery/topstiching on ... no way was I gonna go through the denim Wink. The busk was installed in a sandwich between the outer layer with the detail work and the denim/twill layer that was already sewn together.

I think it is very lovely. Right now I am a lurker until I get my sewing room back together and the dining room table (my cutting table) clear. But you and others are inspirational. Only sewing I have been doing is mending and hemming my work uniforms. But at least that is keeping me familiar with my machines.

I would never, ever have guessed that was your first attempt!  And I envy your patience with that hand embroidery.

also, sandwich method FTW!  I hate premade bone casings.  They're never the right size for the bones, always way too wide so you end up with a little extra bit when you sew or bones sliding around.  I always do sandwich unless the design requires otherwise, and then it's usually a hybrid of sandwich and casings I make myself.

@Kellyhelene

Thanks for the compliment ~ blush~

For the mock up I made casings myself like you do. I had picked up some casing tape but was less than impressed with it. It seemed more trouble than it was worth when I was working in layers anyhow.

I am currently searching for a local buddy to help me with the tape method part of creating an overbust pattern that works for my fig. And for this one since I am still in the experimental stages of creation I was going to use cotton duck... I am wondering if I should pre-shrink it or not... Or will that just create more opportunity for stretch later? Non of the experts at the stores seem to have a particular option.
