Minicorset - Sewing

This one should match the two skirts. My dance leader has made a corset that started to wrinkle. In my opinion it was a bit because of the thin canvas she used, so I bought a tent canvas for mine :-D
I drew a pattern according to my dress pattern book. I'm a greenhorn, so it didn't fit perfectly and needed a little fitting.

This is the state when I already had finished the fitting (even when not yet sure with the shoulder strips).
I decided to edit the lower hem so that the corset would be shorter at the hips.
I cut it in two layers - I pinned the same seams together for the corset to be symmetrical.
