Corset - the sequel
Well I'm all set to start again.
The dressmaker's carbon paper arrived so I can easily transfer all those boning lines to the material without going nuts.
The canvas is ready and I'm trying a smaller size of the Butterick pattern.
I've even unpicked some of the first corset as I didn't have enough of the material remaining to do another one from scratch.
It's amazing how quick it is to unpick all that work when you consider the effort it is to sew it up.
And a friend is giving me some old calico flour sacks to see if they will be suitable for the lining.
