I’m taking my earlier corset as practice and learning from it as i was not happy with it (i did finish it though) and have now started an 18th Century corset, about the 1750’s and am getting on much better with this one. I’m taking my time with this one which is something i never do, while i also focused on stitching the boning partings with more care and they have come out much better.
And it’s starting to take shape………. slowly.
I was also surfing through Facebook and found a women who’s costumes are really wonderful, she makes truly wonderful authentic costumes while describing herself as a ‘self-taught amateur seamstress’. It’s really inspirational – The Aristocat.
