    Wow! Awesome job! I’m especially impressed by your use of the patterned fabric… I always find matching patterns up so annoying :)

      thank you!
      i started with it completely matched but then didn’t like how it was working out, so was a ble to cheat and just concentrate on a few panels… :)

    The corset is very unique and beautiful. The black contrast is genious. I have thought about buying the book (The Basics of Corset building), would you recommend it?

      I would; as a corset building novice I found it a great secondary resource for explaining the different types of materials available and the instructions are really clear. In addition to that it has different ways of building corsets included which would be lovely to explore if I ever made any more.
