B5662 Let the corset-fitting begin again

I am slowly pulling myself out of my sewing slump with (what else?) my new corset I now very much need.  I have been wanting to try out the Butterick 5662 released earlier this year, and here it is cut out in striped cotton for the fitting muslin.

I've already started basting the seams (in black thread).  I'm planning to thread up Camster and put her to work so I can also use a simple yet truly wonderful tool: a magnet for seam allowance.

I had more to say, but the guys are home now and the thoughts left.

I am waiting to see how this turns out.
