I thought it'd be fun to make a corset since I haven't in quite some time, I realized after making it that I remember why I don't wear them lol.  I actually finished 2 last night I've gotten bigger since last time I measured myself so unfortunately they don't fit me quite like I expected them to. I only boned the front seams, I think had I boned the others as well I'd be happier with the overall fit.  Thought I would share anyway cause it's still a neat bustier.  I like the way it looks better on my mannequin but i'm being lazy and not dragging her outside for good photos lol, though having the hubby take photos of me was probably more painful than it would have to take her out (I think the 3 shots below are the only ones not focused somewhere other than where I wanted them to be)

I really like this! It reminds me of Gwen Stefani when she toured with No Doubt a few years ago.

Thanks Smiley  I have fun making them (used to make a ton in doll sizes) but it's been at least 5 years since I made one people size lol  now I just need to make a fluffy tulle skirt and some leggings and a pair of gloves and some chunky jewelry to go with it lol

I have no idea, i've had it in my stash for a few years now and it finally told me what it was supposed to be.  I go to this local fabric shop from time to time that sells designer ends and that's where I found it.  It's kinda mid to heavy weight with a polished satiny denim type feel to it (though the gold numbers are glittery though the glitter doesn't come off)
