great review, not obvious photo. Would like to see the new one, too!

Thanks, Kiwi Wendy. I am sewing this one at the moment, and I have to take it in so much! Lucky I have a toil that I have done first in cheap calico!

Great corsette, looks fab on you. Noice as well.

yes, it's not tight laced ... I have plenty of breathing & eating room. I have a small waist in proportion to hips & bust. That along with the Vast Acreage of boobage, well that's just the upholstered version of G-cup reality. Rather than my usual semi fitted clothing.

Looks great in the photo! Useful review Wendy - I would never have thought of making something like this, but you make it possible. Great vision.

This is so fun and adventurous of you to sew this up! It's refreshing to see something different and theatrical - I love the purple and black together.

You look so cool Wendy. I love the corset and gown, but I love the mask more! Although I'm dying to see what my friend Wendy really looks like. Very useful info about the corset waist stay.

Wow, that is a *fantastic* outfit! I wish you came to my Halloween party! You would have added so much *spirit*. Doesn't look easy, either...excellent!
