Purple Satin Overbust!

My purple satin overbust is finished! (I think.)

It has 28 1/4" spiral steels, two of those extra thick flat steels that corsetmaking.com sells as 1/4" but are actually 5/16", and four regular 1/4" flat steels (on the sides of the lacing.)

The fashion fabric layer is an utterly infuriating silk/rayon slipper satin interfaced with fusible tricot, the strength layer is black English coutil, and the lining is that mysterious handkerchief maybe-linen with the bizarre description about being "100% handkerchief linen" that breathes like linen and is mistaken for linen but wears better than linen.

I originally intended just to do the lace embellishment at the top and bottom, but then a rogue bit of fusible web attached itself to the outside of the satin, and in trying to get it out, a light spot developed.. so it needed more lace to cover it up.

Jet swarovski crystals in ss6 and ss8 sizes accent the black lace and crystal AB crystals accent the silver-edged lace.

I'm still not sure what to wear with it. I'll definitely have to make some kind of bolero, probably in either purple chiffon or silver lace.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and
was curious what all is required to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
