Victorian Corset

Recently some women of the ZelfLingerieMaken-forum decided to do a Corset-sewalong, I decided to join.
We agreed to use the Laughing Moon pattern #100 .
In fact on the patternpaper you can find two patterns, the Dore and the Silverado.
I have made the Silverado.

On the left you can see some of the equipment I used to build the corset.

We ( my husband and I ) had to put the end-caps on the spiral steel boning, we decided to use them for the plastic coated steel boning too. It was a lot of work, very heavy. 

As you can see there are many bones in the corset and I added one more on the side.
The corset weighs a lot!

On top I inserted a lilac ribbon in the binding, so I can pull the top a little tighter if it's necessary. My mannequin isn't really my size, although it seems so in the picture. She has less centimeters in the round, her waist is slightly shorter and the hips a little broader, in comparison to me 
You can see that he lacing in the hips is a little wider, on me it's a straight lacing-line, although the gap is 5 cm wider ;-)
