The trim is wide, 3 inches, and it eats up a lot of space. I fear I've visually chopped the the top off and when I wear it will look like a high waisted mini skirt. I only sewed on one half and I'm debating removing it and replacing it with the same aqua bias trim used for the bottom edge. Or maybe I should just push it further and add something more, like a bow.
Those bows looks like fireworks, or a chrysanthemum, or a cherry blossom. I don't normally put bows on the corsets, they just seem like something that will either break a smooth line, or get crushed, or both. But this corset feels like a folly with the bold black and white pattern and cheerful blue trim. The wide pleated eyelet at the top is already a little more than was needed, why not go all the way and add something purely decorative? I leave it to you, readers. Take the trim off and replace it with the blue bias, or add a giant bow? What do you think?
