Remember when I said I was done with the Silverado?

Seems I lied. I realized it fit quite well up to the bust, so it would make a lovely pattern for an underbust. Yeah, I'm slow.

The shape seems good, but it might just be the twist the twill put in it. I will never use twill again - this was VERY CAREFULLY on grain and it still twisted. I suppose it's okay for a mock-up, but not for a finished product.

You want pictures? they suck. I didn't have the patience to ask a friend to take pictures and the bathroom mirror really should have been cleaned first.

But you can look if you really want to.

The twist in the fabric under tension is very obvious. I won't use twill for anything but mock-ups again.

the twist isn't as obvious with the laces in the way, but the edges are visibly uneven at the bottom.

I like the shaping at the top (this is good, since I have to fit a 12 inch busk in, since that's what I have on hand). Not so sure about the transition between the last two panels.
