Thanks you, everyone, for the positive feedback!  I really appreciate you taking the time to comment.

Ye goddess! You look like a warrior milkmaid... fierce and fetching...

"Fetching"!  Hehehe  That made me giggle.  Cheesy

twylag, stangely the colors were inspired by an old episode of Xena.  There is a warrior woman, which I think was called Najara or something in the 4th season, that had on a blue and tan leather costume that was interesting.  I liked the light color combination together.  I was thinking of light spring colors and it just popped in my head.  Odd where we find inspiration for things, huh?  Smiley

McJulie-O, the color design, which I'm calling "intarsia" after the knitting technique, was something I was experimenting on a while ago on a hat.  The front might look nice, but it can look pretty crazy on the back side.  Still trying to perfect my skills.  Smiley

Its awesome i'd love to do something like that.
How long did it take you to make it?

This corset took about 3 days.  2 to build it and 1 to assemble it.  I've had some practice making me pretty quick, but I keep redoing parts, which slows me down.  Smiley

My mom is wanting a new one, now.  So, I guess I better get back to work.

Ahh, good ill get to work tommorow
i guess i'll have to collect some tab things first and find a way to attach them..

All corsets are hot, but ones that are creative and don't cost at least $100 are even hotter.  I totally want one.  Great work! Grin
Get it together!

That is awesome! I love soda tab crafts, I'm just no good at them myself. This is really cool, in fact, that whole dress and everything is fantastic.

What a cool idea, I hope you don't mind but I am going to show this to my son and his girlfriend. They have to do a recycling project for Fashion class-just have to see when the due date is to start saving tabs!

Again, thanks everyone for the comments.  I've been pondering adding some (shoulder) straps mainly for looks.  If I add them, I will post some new pics.

Thanks.  Don't mind in the least.  Sounds like a fun assignment for a class.  Don't forget to hit the friends and family up for extra tabs or they might be waiting for quite some time to start their project.  My first hat took a few months just waiting to get enough of them.  It was really frustrating only weaving a few a day.  Smiley
