What on Earth are you hand sewing? I've made a few corsets, and I only ever hand sew my bias over so it looks nice on the right side. Also, how accurate was the pattern to your measurements? It looks very good, but I just wonder if it sturdy enough with such loosely woven fabrics. Thanks.

I was hand sewing the bias to finish the raw edges and hand basting the outter seams to the lining seams. I guess you wouldn't consider that a lot of hand sewing but I sure did at that time since I was a beginner and didn't hand sew very much! As for the fabric, I bought it from a corset maker; the starched cotton fabric for the linning is tightly woven, specifically used for corsetry as it strong enough to with hold the force of the body against the fabric. I hope the fitting was correct, I mean I did learn how to make this corset from a professional ;)

It's so beautiful you could almost wear it with a long skirt as part of an evening gown!

Thank you for your review. I am very impressed :) I have purchased two corsets and love them. Did you use for steel boning?
