Progress on Silverado Corset in Dupioni

Dupioni Silverado  --in progressDupioni Silverado --in progress

I've spent a lot of time working on this version of the Laughing Moon Silverado corset. It's not done yet, and I plan on adding a few more boning channels, as well as perhaps attempting to smooth out some of the warping of the outer layer. This is the version that I altered according to the Foundations Revealed instructions. Besides lengthening it by an inch, the alterations were actually fairly minor. It's a total of four layers, cotton lining, the canvas core, and muslin in between the canvas and the dupioni, because the canvas is dark colored and was showing through too much. I really should have used a light colored canvas. The extra layer has increased distortion problems quite a lot. Of course, the fact that I don't have a walking foot massively increases that problem, I've really gotta get my paws on one. I'm hoping that I can get at least one more boning channel into each piece 13 (the front side piece, with the worst distortion there. It is coming along, though.
After the needle that shattered when I hit a pin making one of the boning channels, I'm seriously considering wearing safety goggles for sewing! It very nearly did serious damage.

I have (I think) finally finished the Foundations Revealed alterations to the Silverado corset from Laughing Moon 100. Many of the adjustments seemed overly minute and fiddly, especially given that it's a gored corset anyways; perhaps it wasn't the best pattern choice for the alterations. But I started it, and finally finished it.. and now it's time to actually sew it!
