I have this Tudor style corset in plain steel gray drill that just needs the bias binding put on it ..
Ive lost weight ...lots of weight  and I made it too "tall"

If there is a  5ft6+  size 26+ women out there who wants a steel boned Tudor corset all ready for embellishment and wants to swap ...contact me

It was going to be part of a steampunk outfit...with cogs painted on it...ah well

Hello Dollbecky! Congrats on the weight loss - boo to not being able to use your corset  Cheesy I've altered corsets for ladies before -depending on the construction it can be easy or living hell, have you given it a thought for yours so you can still use it?

Well Ive lost 40 pounds and this corset was sewn up at my maximum density so thats a lot of altering
and...corsets are great... I have quite a few and I thought since this is a good solid steel boned corset it might be nice to offer it to someone else..
Also some of the work was done for me by a amazing corset maker...and I don't want to mess her work up I'd rather it went to a women fits it now and loves it.
It would work for renfairs too if you know anyone

*pics soon*

I would love to do a swap for this.  I'm 5'8" and a 28 so this would probably be pretty well fitting for me.  What would you be interested in in exchange?
