This afternoon I finished the cream silk underbust corset with lace edging. This is not a tight-lacing corset, but it does have a lot of hip spring, so I decided to try an 8-panel design rather than the usual six. I like the smoothness of the shape a lot better than the last tight-lacing corset I made, so in the future I am planning to use more panels on my tightlacing corsets as well.
The lace is a 100% rayon venice lace edging, which I hand-tacked to the corset along the entire length to prevent the longer parts from curling away from the body of the corset.
