Last night, while watching (semi-appropriately) Robin Hood: Men in Tights, I dug through my fabric tote and turned up the next winning pattern. I'd forgotten I had this, to be perfectly honest with you, and I have no idea where I got it.

Probably Ebay.

This is the best link I can find in 20 seconds: McCall's 4107: Renaissance Bodice(s)

I'm thinking of making A, without the lace-up sides and I'll probably lace the back in ribbon instead of cord. Still need to locate fabric for the sides and back, but probably black something or other. The fabric I want to use for the middle contrast section is this (warning: big cameraphone picture). It's actually left over from my bedroom curtains back in Binghamton, if anyone remembers those -- a reasonably heavy, shimmery red fabric that doesn't flash gold or silver like most metallic-threaded fabrics do; instead, it shimmers black. Really badass fabric - I wish I had more left over than the yard or so that I do.

The potentially tricky part is to procure the semi-necessary yard and a half of boning.

Also tricky is losing the 4" at my waist that will be necessary for my peace of mind, my wedding dress and the bodice, but let's not dwell on that.


(By the by - the skirt that was mentioned yesterday? I took a look at it last night, and if it were shorter I think I'd like it better. It's foot-wide strips of dark and light purple satin, and as an ankle-length skirt it's just too much. It's consigned to the scrap bag until further notice or resurrection as a pillow cover.)
