I spent 5 or 6 hours working on the corset this weekend. I am, of course, using an entirely different construction method from the last one. However, if flat lining the foundation layer to the fashion layer (already fused to interfacing) with basting spray works, I will have made a tremendous amount of progress. If not, still decent. Of course, all this hinges on whether what amounts to 6 layers of fabric, two of them quite thick, can be successfully flat felled. So far, so good, though I had a moment of almost panic sitting in front of my cutting table as I was about to cut into the corduroy, afraid that there was no way I'd get the panels cut out on the straight of grain. Fortunately, I realized just how much extra fabric I have. I can cut out a whole new set if I need to...but I'm really not planning on it.

Extra (matching) fabric question:
Here's a thought though...I generally buy about 2 yards of fabric for a corset, and don't tend to use more than a yard, maybe a yard and a half if I use it for matching bias binding at the top and bottom of the corset. So I've got a decent chunk of fabric left over that matches the corset...that's got to be useful somehow. Matching chokers are fun, but the fabric requirements for a choker are very small, even if it's cut on the bias. What else can I do with it?
