After some delay, the Civil War corset, is done!
And while I cannot say it is my finest piece of sewing, (the gores gave me trouble) I can say it fits and works extremely well, and it cinches the waist! Oh my!
I literally almost fell over while my mother was lacing me!
The busk can be seen above, and aside from that and the grommets, everything was sourced from my stash.
The back, with adjustment centered near the waist.
I am very pleased with it, and excited that it is finally done!
