better too big than too small

So…I made the inner and outer of the test corset this weekend. Took the outer, pinned in all the grommets and did a quick fitting…There were about three inches of overlap in the back….*le sigh*

Removed all gussets, took another half inch in each seam and tried again. Much better, I will have to remember to give Ageless Patterns a full inch allowance. Now I have to order the busk before I can continue. Oh well, I can quilt the gores and maybe start another one while I wait. Ageless has a very nice, slightly simpler corset that I would like to try as well for a possible under piece for the dress.
