2012, me, manda

Corsetry/ leather armour

I have the basics of leather armour. The front has a busk, the back is laced; straps are made but not yet attached. I am very tired. Took out one bust gore as still too big - ideally you'd add more boning but everything stays in place and will do just fine for the G. learnt some lessons whilst making it - leather is lovely but can be a bugger to sew - how to put a busk in - and that sail eyelets or grommets rock!

Yet to make - a hood with a mantle - have a pattern - doesn't take long - will prolly add fur to it. Maybe a pair or trews - more likely a wrap around skirt

Very tired now
