Well, the cool thing about this suit is I do not wear it with a corset. I can, but I don't. I designed the under "vest" from a corset pattern and boned it that way. I do recommend a button hook, but that is because the buttons are vintage and small. I wear it over a blouse during the day under the bolero jacket, and I remove the blouse and the bolero for dinner, most sexy.
My uncorseted measurements are : 34/24/36
corseted: 32/23/35 arm length 25
Heather's skirt length is perfect walking length on me.
I add an inch to the side length of my corset from the waist up.
If you wanted to get this, I would fix a couple of things, and I was about to shorten the underskirt, because I was tired of trying to wear heels on pavement. So I can leave it alone, or shorten it to your length. But wait, there's more...I also have a bolero jacket from J Peterman, that just happened to be the same color velvet. It is nice over a blouse when it is too hot for the vest and the wool jacket. I was going to make one of Heather's corselets to wear with it.
Also I would include all the scrap that I have from making it, in case you want to modify, or make other pieces.
Anyway, here are some more pictures of it.
Let me know if you need anything else.
