I have recovered from my corset disaster last week.  And this time it's much prettier. ;)



Here you can see my basting lines.  Really the stitches should be smaller and there should be more lines of basting to keep the fabric from shifting, but I was in a hurry.  I definitely fought the shifting layers because I rushed.  :)



Here is the whole thing laid out after I stitched the channels.  The actual color isn't nearly as bubble gum pink.  It's really a magenta/gold cross dye that comes out a salmon color.  There will be a seam up the front and the lacing will be in the back.

It's pretty! So you just had a way too involved mockup before. Nothing wrong with that :)

Do you have the edges zigzagged, or is that me feeling like an old woman again?

These are going to be the girliest, most awesome bodies ever.

Yeah the edges are zigzagged. Just so the silk doesn't unravel too much before I put the binding on.

Thanks!
