This looks great, love the color combination of the dark blue with white; it suits you very well! Iīm musing about making the chemise and pants to go with a ready made corset. But Iīm wondering if the very loose chemise together with the pants wouldnīt be quite uncomfortable to wear under a tight corset... What does it feel like? I donīt even know how you would get the knee-long chemise properly under the pants! Would it be an option to shorten the chemise a good deal? Any ideas on this would be greatly appreciated!

Ok, two things: first, you are my hero for wearing this to an archery range because I, too, love archery; and second, you did an awesome job on this outfit. It reminds me, for some reason, of a character out of Lord of the Rings or the BBC's Robin Hood.

I have made this one too. I find because of my height that I have to lengthen the pattern 4 inches to get it to fit right. I had a sewing teacher help me to get all the fittings and alterations correct. When you start sewing some more, you will notice what changes are needed each time you start a new project.

Matter of fact, I was just looking at the Laughing Moon pattern myself online, and even the chemise is cute up, the way they've done the bodice there.

Another winner, and I love the shot, too! I know Laughing Moon Merchantile has a real pretty corset pattern. Of course, I don't know anything about corsets, so it may not be the type you're looking for, but here's a link where you can see it: (Geez, that's got to be the shortest link I've pasted in for a while!)

Very cool corset, very romantic archery shot! You'd have been a wench to be reckoned with.

why thank you, and the "dynamic pose" was a picture of me in costume doing archery. I will see what I can do to get a link to a bigger picture...

Great job.

It looks great (I wish I could see a bigger pic?) and your dynamic pose shows that this must be both well-fitted and comfy! Well done!
