Tea-Dyed Coutil Corset -- Pictures on Me!

My parents visited last week, so I finally have photos of my tea-dyed coutil corset on me!

The fit is really pretty good (certainly better than on my dress form!) but I am kinda wishing I'd cinched the waist a bit more. I didn't want it to be as dramatic as my denim corset, which had a pretty significant reduction, but I think I ended up giving it too little. I'm frustrated with the double-layer construction method; I think it makes me too cautious, since nothing can really be changed.

The binding isn't as smooth as I would have liked it to be, I'm not exactly sure what went wrong there. Binding seems to be too easily forgotten when researching corsetry techniques.

There's some wrinkling in the back at the waist. I think this means that I gave that back panel a bit too much curve. It might have been a discrepancy in the inner back panel vs. the outer back panel, which I guess would have given more or less the same result-- fabric being pulled where it isn't supposed to be pulled.
