Sewing the real corset is always different than sewing the mock-up.
Even though I've pretty much gone through all the steps needed to make the corset, when I sit down at the machine to begin constructing the finished piece I tense up. Knowing it counts makes it more difficult. If you are sewing along with me don't fall victim to corset nerves! They will make you not only nervous, but hyper critical and prevent you from moving forward. Just keep stitching.
