Corset Project

Since I don't have my dress form yet and the Maryland Renn Faire is coming up soon, I'm going to be working on a corset! I'll be doing it in a lovely black and silver brocade, but first I have to work up a mock up in some scrap fabric. Here are the cut out pattern pieces:

Now to pin and baste them together for fitting!

I worked up the draft corset and it was way too big! With 5 plus inches of excess I had to take in a lot of seams.

Here's how it looked after all that:

I'll have to chop it down to make it into a new pattern for cutting the final from it. That will have to be another day though because it's 1:40 AM.
