Plunge corset

Using the pattern by Caroline Woolin (from Corsets by Caroline on Etsy). There are some mistakes on my work on this but I still love it. I ended up having to unpick one side and completely re-do it due to careless sewing the first time and also bad cutting. I managed to salvage it but probably my end pieces on that side were a bit off grain and so I have a bit of twisting going on but nothing too bad. I couldn’t wait to finish it so I fixed the eyelets/grommets using the wrong tools and that shows too. But I still love it. This is the third corset I have made now. The fabric funnily enough is the back of some nursery curtain fabric by Disney!! lol
