I promised an update on my corset and never got to it! I made an underdress and cloak to go with it! Purple and green are my favorite colors and I love butterflies so I used those things to make the outfit! Here is a picture of me at the Ren Faire in full garb!!!!
I was very comfortable wearing it while standing. Then we sat down to eat... that did not go so well. I do love it though! I did get to wear to other side of my corset (it is reversable) as part of my pirate outfit but did not get a good picture of me in that.
The cloak was a lot of fun to make. I special ordered the trim and clasps. They go perfectly with the fabric! It was also a great weight because it can be rather warm at the faires. I would like to make a heavy one too for when it is cooler outside.
