Just finished a corset I was making to go with the LOTR skirt I have on. Plain black slubbed silk with silver flossing. The pattern is loosely based on the one from Period Patterns for Stage and Screen, but has a lot of alterations. It has been made an overbust and had three inches taken out of the waist.

That's really nice. Works well with the skirt :)

Both look great!

Any chance we can get a closer look at that front closure? Looks like there's something really interesting going on there!

I used swing hooks instead of a traditional busk for a more fetishy/steam punk look. Close up added ^^

Ai, mama! The corset isn't the only good-looking piece of work there. <3

Oh my goddess! That corset is gorgeous! How many boning pieces are in that!?

Thanks ^^ Boning wise,I put one behind the busk to strengthen it, one down each seam (its a five panelled corset) and two down each side front panel, as well as two at the center back on each side for lacing.

OH WOW. You look lovely. The corset is great. How did you get the lettering at the bottom of your skirt?

I got a copy of the "one ring" Tengwar script and printed it out at about the right size, its done in fabric paint but I had a friend do it as I dont have a very steady hand when it comes to that sort of thing.
