Finished project: the ca. 1890 black satin corded corset

My 1890s black silk corded corset was actually done two weeks ago, in time for the Dr Sketchy talk, where it looked gorgeous on the model, and was immensely popular with everyone.  Not only had the original corset sold before the event, but I got three further inquiries about buying it or having one commissioned.  I guess I had better get used to cording! This was a time consuming and nerve-wracking corset to make.  As I mentioned before, I wasn’t sure it would really fit and work until the very last, but the results are more than worth it.  As always, I do have some tweaks to make to improve the next version though. If you want to see it on a model, there are Dr Sketchy photos here, and here.
