Wow, you did a fabulous job.  It's the perfect present for a Maiden fan.  Your boyfriend must have been thrilled.

I love the third one, very pretty.  You must be a very fast learner.

This looks awesome! I want one!! Where'd you take the class?

I took the class in Seattle at Pacific Fabrics.  I strongly recommend it to anyone who lives in the area.  The teacher is great and it's for all sewing levels, all sizes, and for both women or men.

I've been wanting to make a corset for years and years, but they always seemed really intimidating...boning, laces, hooks...when I still struggle with putting a zipper in a tote bag.  Luckily for me I found this great corset making class and oila...and it wasn't nearly as difficult as I was imagining.  And I found this great fabric that is so colorful and graphic that I figured it would hide any small mistakes.  Here is the finished project. 

The front:

The back:

The side showing the geisha girls in the fabric. 

And a close up of the fabric.  I think it is by Alexander Henry.

It's not perfect, but I'm really happy with it for being my first try.  I can't take credit for the pattern.  The instructor drafted the patterns for us, so I just had to cut and sew, but I can't wait to make another one. 

Thanks for looking.

You're sister is so lucky.  I can see why you had a hard time parting with it.
