Part of the lining installed. You can also see I put some twill tape at the waist.

And now my fabric for the 1911 corset. It's cream cotton coutil with 1/4 inch navy blue stripes. Navy Blue is quite appropriate for the commemoration of a ship, don't you think? The bias tape and satin ribbon laces will also be navy blue, and I dug out this pretty lace from my stash to decorate it.
