Long overdue update on corset!

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.
