That is really awesome. I wish I had the patience and skill to make a corset... (not that I would wear one -_-;)
It looks super nice.

I love the fabric;  the pics don't do it justice.
Great job!

Wow, this is your first? Great job! If I got a corset for my birthday, it would be the best birthday EVER!  Cheesy

As for what you would do differently next time, like others said I don't see why lacing up both the front and the back would be harder. I find it really convenient to have both sides laced because you can adjust the size if you gain or lose weight and still have the front edges together. You need a friend to help the first time: lace up the front (when it is off) so that the edges are together, then put it on and have the friend lace up the back to the desired tightness. Then you are ready to put it on and take it off by yourself using ONLY the front laces. Yay! It's really quite easy. I'd also bone it more for more support, but that's just me. I like having a nice smooth look.

Also, just because I'm a historical clothing nerd and these things irk me: a busk like the one you're thinking of would be very inappropriate for Elizabethan style stays. Stick with lacing.  Wink
