Making Corsetry II

Hmmm. Phase whatever….

Well the second piece was pinned and then duly repinned as I realised I was making a carbon copy of the first half instead of a reflection… Armed with two 'stays' I hit the sewing machine and spent what felt like an age faffing over lots of short seams. I am now in posession of a pair of stiff cotton, shaped pieces.

I overestimated the bust gores – must trim them down a size. The hip gores seem to stick out too much – may not need them after all or they may be better further back. Need the aid of a second pair of hands to fit this thing properly on me. Looks like on the whole I may need to make a slightly smaller version – which is nice.

Have been hunting for the bits I need for this and here, here and here seem good (esp Vena Cava). I want lacing plates and a spoon busk but I probably can't justify them…
