Corset Done At Last!

I have finally finished the 1770s corset! My fingers will take a few days to recover, I suspect. It even still fits, despite Christmas in the time between planning the pattern out and finishing it. I'm pleased with the way it has worked out, and it is surprisingly comfortable to wear, although I haven't tried an extended time yet. There is space to tighten the laces if the diet continues to be successful, as well. Sadly it doesn't make me magically much thinner, but I actually have a figure of sorts!

Next stop on the process is to make a rump pad (aka 'bum roll'), and a hooped petticoat. Then I can really start on the dress and petticoat.

PS: God knows why the pics have come out sideways! Apologies, folks.
