Corset, smaller!

So, I fixed the corset... somewhat. I decided to take it in by sewing it slighty smaller, from the inside of course, along the boning channel in the back (but not at the edge). You can't really see the seam unless you're looking for it. I unpicked a few stitches of the binding (top and bottom) to do it, and now I'll have to go back and fix it, but overall, it was a quick and serviceable fix! I can't believe I was thinking about redoing all those eyelets...

I like it as-is, but I'd really like a better-fitting corset. I never seem to manage to make my bodices give me that shelf-y lift look; mine tend to flatten them but still give them oomph. I have D's, so why can't I figure out how to make a shelf?!

  2. I go to many events, but in Montana and Utah the most. My family lives in Salt Lake so I head down there often, and naturally I hit the local events up in Montana, since I live in Bozeman.
