Corset Update

Corsets are easy to make once youv'e made one,  but take a bit of time.
These are the fabrics I am going to use.  The print is the main fabric, the ivory is the lining and the white is coutil, which is like the base of the corset.

Over the last couple days I was able to trace out the pattern pieces from the originals....

And cut out the pieces of all three fabrics.

Today I pieced the pieces together into the layers they belong.

 Twill tape was added at certain stress points.

And the busk has been added.
