Well, another UFO completed! Opportunity knocked this past wet, cozy weekend to stay home and sit at my sewing machine and get some stitching done. The rosebud corset I started this summer finally got its finishing touches and taken over to Lacis, in Berkeley, California http://www.lacis.com for its grommets. Lacis has all the equipment you need to put in grommets for corsetry for a minimal fee and all the help and advise you can want.
The original post for the corset was this one: http://lachatelainechocolat.blogspot.com/2011/07/le-modiste-summer-of-underwear.html
The silk is super fine so I can already see that I will have issues with the boning coming through at the bottom edges. In hindsight I should have put a middle layer so that the bones would go between the mid and layer and the coutil. As I don't do Victorian events that often I may be okay. I love this one. I haven't made a corset in a long time so I have to pat myself on the back a bit.
