Finished hammering the grommets and eyelets into my Pinkie Pie bodice tonight, and was able to try it on for the first time in the 3 months I've been working on it.
Holy crap - it actually fits. It actually fits, and the embroidery gets pulled properly so it lays flat against my torso, and it didn't instantly disintegrate into ash and ribbon like I had a nightmare that it did.
On top of that, it is as supportive as some of my professionally made corsets from RenFest (which was a huge fear I had with regards to this bodice). Now that I've seen it on me, though, I think I will be embellishing it quite a bit more, since it actually looks a bit more princess than pirate. Possibly due to the fact that it is a lovely mix of fuschia and baby pink...
But I just can't get over the fact that I actually made a bodice, with boning, and embellishments, and everything, and it fits me properly.
