I ADORE CORSETS! But they're not really practical for everyday wear, so I figured I could look HOT while its COLD outside Cheesy I just had to share it wth everyone!

This was made using three different patterns, then tailored to my measurements (total hours worked including cutting 40.75). I used one pattern for the hood, one for the shirt part and then one for the skirt part. 

Its deep purple velvet, with lilac satin lining, the corset loops are matching colored satin ribbon that I sewed into the back darts. Buttons are silver toned, with Celtic crane knot-work designs.
I love it! Its extremely warm so I'll be ready for winter Cheesy
