The corset is called the Cymbidum Orchid because it's bright green with a pale pink lining.

It's based on the pattern for an original 1890s corset from Corsets: Historical Patterns and Techniques (which I don't actually really recommend unless you are super into historical costuming, and have a lot of experience and patience, but that's another story)

Wow, that looks stunning. What a beautiful color.

Thank you!  I can't take credit for the colour though - that was all my friend's choice!  

And I've realised that I should have linked to my blog post about it, just in case anyone wanted to see a dozen more pictures and read more about it ;-)

Ooooh that is lovely fabric, and all the boning and stiching looks like a of a lot of work. Great job (when do we get to see it on? ;)

Thank you!  As for seeing it on Madame O, you'll have to haunt my blog in the hope that we do a photoshoot and post it ;-)
