The Late Victorian Corset: Finished (well nearly)
Well here is the corset! I still need to add flossing and some lace, but in general it is finished! I'm relatively happy with it, it is too big in the bust and hip overall, but for my first real Victorian corset I'm happy. I really like the shape this corset creates and it is quite comfortable! I'll make my next one smaller of course, but this corset will be a great starting point for jumping into late Victorian costuming next year.
Next up I'll be making a chemise to wear underneath, and hopefully I'll eventually add flossing and lace to the corset too. Sorry about the casual-ness of these photos but I was so excited it was finished that I just had to show it to you all asap!
