Corset Update

So, I completed the lining as a sort of mock-up test, which was a good thing since the cup size for the pattern was larger than necessary. 

 

Today all of the parts needed to complete the corset arrived in the mail.  I had to buy supplies from three different companies - one carried the brown coutil I wanted, but only sold the other supplies in enormous bulk quantities. …
