Thank you Cousette. I enjoyed making it. I love vintage anything.  When I find vintage lace, tatting, linens etc. I always wonder about the lives of the women who made them or wore them. In a strange way they speak to me and so I bring them home and treasure each piece. Thus, I have a lot of vintage bits and pieces around here. Making Corset Fitting Parlor brought back fond memories of my great aunt who always wore a corset that laced up the back.

Thanks Debbie. It was fun to make. It reminded me of my "Aunt Dump" who always wore a corset that laced up the back. They called her Dump because she was short and stocky.
