      To be honest, this one took a while. I patterned it myself so there was a lot of trial and error fitting parts together. I think I’d get one done in 10-16hrs if I tried to do the same again.

      Note to self: stitching channels through all the fabric as oppose to building a corset out of separate lining, boning and cover layers is MUCH easier!

      Also, satin (even dutchess) is NOT the easiest material for corsetry…
