Corset Presentation

Our corsets were our final project for out Body Contouring class last semester.  I am posting this now because we just recently had our critique for them.  Seeing as almost the entire corset is hand basted and sewn with special tailoring techniques, we did not finish earlier enough to have the critique before the last class.  I wanted to wait to show you the pictures until i was able to properly photograph them on the dress forms.  Everyone did an amazing job creatively and technically with these corsets!

My corset.  I created the fabric by sandwiching lace in between two layers of organza to give it a more subtle feel.
