I like the coloring and the style you chose for this. I think the boning shapes it very well and the lace at the to is a nice accent. I haven't seen to many corsets out there with lace on it. People who make them tend to leave off a lot of ornamentation from what I've noticed. I think you used lace for part of the tie on the back? I can't tell because black as we know tends to blend together with everything. But, I love the way it drapes in the back!

Thanks. :aww: I've been getting quite a few requests for lace edging of late, which I wouldn't have expected exactly because I haven't seen a lot of it out there. It was very, very common in the late Victorian.

The tie is just black double-face satin ribbon. The lace would not be able to hold up to the stress, even if it would look pretty. ;)

I did think that it would! Poor lace though it would look good on the back, but would never be strong enough as you said. I wear corsets rather regularly myself that's why I can appreciate the good boning and the secure ties in the back. The one I wore for the longest time was a simple corset made from suede and it didn't have any boning in it and had leather ties. It worked for my garb because it's wasn't flashy but honestly the leather ties would allows come undone because leather tends to slip and not having boning is more uncomfortable than having a corset that is actually fitted to your body structure properly with good steal boning. I eventually got two other ones that were sized and made for me later. Your reminds me a tiny bit of the red one I bought, it's a similar red... but I like yours more for a different type of occasion the lace makes it stand out a lot more from all of the other corsets out there and makes it a lot more dressy. I really think you did a great job with it.
