B4254 midVictorian corset finished!

The pics you've been waiting for:


It's not perfect ... but this is an improvement over my last attempt at a corset ... and hubby says he *REALLY* likes this one.  Still a few wrinkles to work out ... and I'll have to fuss with the lacing ribbon a bit as hubby said he couldn't work it straight.  Overall, I am pleased with how this turned out, and hubby says he is very pleased.

I think I'll pick something quick and easy for my next project.  I am needing a bit of instant gratification after this one!

It looks very nice! You know, aprons are always a good instant gratification project. :]

Very nice, job well done. The denim is a great look for your corset. Love it.

That looks great! I'm totally loving the whole jeans-corset look, especially with the pink thread!

Your corset looks great! Thanks for posting such great photos, links and tips. I am getting ready to sew my first corset and have found your blog to one of the most helpful - especially regarding sizing tips, I will definitely try a muslin fitting corset starting two sizes down. Thanks!
