Taking Shape

I am pooped! Sewing most of the day again.

This morning Miss L came for a dress fitting. I was so pleased that the dress fitted perfectly with only a tiny adjustment to the bust which I expected. Hurrah!!

Then it was on with the corset.


I've completed the shell. Tried it on. The cups were too big as suspected but I didn't mind as during the night I had a better idea which involved taking them out (and replacing them) anyway. Which I have done now, but post pictures.


These pics are with only 2 bones at the back and one at the front, so the shape isn't perfect yet. By the time it's finished there will be about 20 bones.

So! Guess what I'll be doing tomorrow?!

I'm guessing some good old boning is what you'll be up to. Wow you are one fast worker hon. It looks amazing.

I have been following this, and you are exhausting me. I haven't even sewn new buttons on my raincoat.

I just wish I had somewhere to wear a corset to. I mean it's not exactly your every day wear.... I hope you will be telling us all about the event you are going to? It looks great by the way... very impressive sewing!
