I underestimated the corset. I thought one day would be enough time, and suddenly it was Thursday and what happened to my vacation!? But, it’s done, complete with a pound or more of metal boning, a full lining, and finished with handmade bias tape.

Eh, okay, it isn’t completely complete. I can actually put it on, as it is lacking eyelets and lacing. So I can hold it up to my chest, ogle at its resplendent glory, and set it back down. It’s beauty has not been fully realized. All will be set right today, though, with a trip to my friendly neighborhood fabric store and lots of advice. I hope.

So for now, I have some pictures of the almost wonderful armor…erm, corset.

And, for a little tease, the beginnings of the skirt. I have the components for the crinoline cut out, and ready to sew up. I am doing the skirt freehand, off intuition and previous experience. And much crossing of fingers.

Lastly, here is a peek at the fabrics that will be used to make the yummy overskirt. Although this doesn’t *quite* capture the purpleyness of the chiffon, it’s pretty damn close. This was a hard shot for DH to get.

Wish me luck!
