It's absolutely beautiful and very flattering on you. I'm also glad to see the pics you and Nicole took turned out pretty swell.

Thanks everyone for the killer feedback - it feels really good especially after all the frustrating math parts of the project.


The corset was done in three layers... cotton twit and denim and in this sandwich layer is where I sewed the channels for the bones. And then the outer layer of cotton twill that I did the embroidery/topstiching on ... no way was I gonna go through the denim Wink. The busk was installed in a sandwich between the outer layer with the detail work and the denim/twill layer that was already sewn together.

wowzers, that is really nice.  And I love the tree, it's very.... Women Who Run with the Wolves (a book I highly recommend).

I think it is very lovely. Right now I am a lurker until I get my sewing room back together and the dining room table (my cutting table) clear. But you and others are inspirational. Only sewing I have been doing is mending and hemming my work uniforms. But at least that is keeping me familiar with my machines.

I would never, ever have guessed that was your first attempt!  And I envy your patience with that hand embroidery.

also, sandwich method FTW!  I hate premade bone casings.  They're never the right size for the bones, always way too wide so you end up with a little extra bit when you sew or bones sliding around.  I always do sandwich unless the design requires otherwise, and then it's usually a hybrid of sandwich and casings I make myself.

Thanks for the compliment ~ blush~

For the mock up I made casings myself like you do. I had picked up some casing tape but was less than impressed with it. It seemed more trouble than it was worth when I was working in layers anyhow.

I am currently searching for a local buddy to help me with the tape method part of creating an overbust pattern that works for my fig. And for this one since I am still in the experimental stages of creation I was going to use cotton duck... I am wondering if I should pre-shrink it or not... Or will that just create more opportunity for stretch later? Non of the experts at the stores seem to have a particular option.
