Corset complete!!!!

I present to you, my fabulous Victorian style waist cinch corset!  It is layered, one layer of this really horrid thick orange and gold patterned fabric, and a top layer of black lace.  I used all metal boning (stiff boning for the front pieces and bendy spiral steel boning for my curvy bits).  Since I drafted my own pattern for this one (from my body measurements), I messed up the back two pieces and made them unnecessarily small, thus leaving a large 4 inch gap in the back.  A normal gap is supposed to be 2 inches.  Oops!  I'll change my pattern and have better luck next time!
