Just one corset..of many

Production for the Corset Fashion Show is well underway! This is just one of many corsets that will be featured and it's not quite finished - it's also not on a proper sized mannequin.

This corset was created by starting with Vogue Patterns dress block/sloper. How I did it will be outlined in my second corset making book which unfortunatly will likely not hit stores until 2013. It's made from deep magenta Chinese brocade and features a hidden busk.
