Those are the same plates I made in 2008.

Hey, it's okay to be late to the party .. if you are the only one who leaves.

If I were a D&D character, I'd be Lawful Good. Yeah, I'm not much fun.

ya, i know. Cris was saying that the vest makes the difference. Vest is what i've always had such a tough time with. and i really like the shoulder pad. That' always been another frutration.

it's the same vest, altered to fit again after it shrunk in washing. It fits my dummy exactly the same way as the original vest.

On me the plates are ok on the cup its self but it always pops on the lower part..the flap I guess you can call it. It finally got worse. We'd made 3 sets this past 2 years now.

Do you wear a corset under?

They are too flat. Look at the photo work log of mine for an idea of how they should look:

Mine were formed by hand using the dip and form method.  I didn't shape them over a form, beyond putting an oven mitt on my knee and using my knee to give a smoother curve. The darts guide the shaping.
