Beautiful corset! Love the fabric and how you put it all together.
I don't think that anyone asked, but how did you sew inside the seams, the hook-n-eyes? I can't find a busk to buy or to order and I have to use hook-n-eyes.

Verrrry carefully. LOL
I'll try to draw a picture of how I did it.

k-
first you sew the hooks upside down and backwards onto your top fabric and the layer behind it.


then using a zipper foot, straight stitch over that.


then add your other layers, top side down, and use your zipper foot to straight stitch again. You want to catch the necks of the hooks with your stitches so the base loops don't show when it's right side out. Stitch VERY VERY VERY slowly. Hand-crank it even. Otherwise you will break a needle.


Then flip it all right side out and straight stitch again, VERY VERY slowly to anchor the layers down and into the loops of the hooks


Do the same thing with eyelets.

I just...love corsets...and you have made one that is absolutely stunning. Not to mention you have the perfect body for one -mutters about the unfairness of it all-  But seriously, you have some amazing talent. I can't wait to see ones you make in the future!
