*whew* I've been working on this forever now. Just one of those projects that are off and on. It's from McCall's 4861.

I love the pattern of the fabric and the fabric's weight, but it's definently not for shaping. Friday was the first time I got the courage to wear it out and the compliments were great! I've started another, fuller corset and hopefully this one won't take a year^.^ Thanks for looking!

I love this fabric!  It's beautiful.  I've been wanting a corset; was that pattern difficult to follow?

This fabric is lovely! The corset look so pretty, but need action shots!

Ooh that's very pretty. I really like the fabric pattern and the binding is a nice touch. I agree with those who'd like to see an action shot. It looks like it should fit nicely.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

I JUST made that corset as well! I found the pattern to be pretty simple to follow, and the end result? Wow! Yours looks amazing! <3 The only trouble I had was the bias binding at the end, there... I think the next time I make the pattern, I'm going to use a different method rather than rounding the corners of the bias tape. My machine was NOT happy with me after attempting to sew through a total of eight layers :/

I love the way it looks! Hopefully some action shots will be taken Smiley
