Corset making convert

My first ever corset is done!

Ballerina arms?

I thought the blue ribbon could make a cute bow, but I’m pretty sure I’m just going to cut it off. Gets in the way while lacing.

And with this, I will never go back to non-custom fitted corsets. There is just no comparison between how this one feels compared to my Dark Garden corset. The main difference is I can get the bust tight enough without having to go OMGDEATHTIGHT on the waist. (Real conclusion – I am shaped like a cylinder).

I think this will just become my standard project-finishing image:

    You are so right about custom-fitted vs. off the rack corsets. I will (also) never go back. Congrats on a very difficult project!
