Looking great! I love how carefully you fitted it to you but without drastically changing the shape of the original. I can definitely tell it is a Victorian shape and love scooped front shaping and bust support. I can't wait to see what you do with this! I think you'll be amazed at how light and supportive the synthetic whalebone can be. I've only used it in 4 corsets and 2 are my personal pieces but Im super happy with it in the initial stages of testing.
Thanks, Laurie! It was really important to me to keep that historical shape - this is about using/resurrecting a historical patent, so for me it's vital to work with it, rather than push it into whatever shape I want. Hope you enjoy the final piece as much! :)
