Hello fans ;)
so as mentioned in my last post I started working the next pieces for my little wool flanell collection.
I selected a pattern and cut out the pieces for the corset. Therefore I fused the wool to an untreated cotton canvas using Vliesofix (similar to Wonder under, if I'm not mistaken). I had been a bit unsure if it would work out, but so far I didn't get any bubbles and such.
I didn't use the pattern I mentioned last time as it wasn't fitting for the planned embroidery. So I now use another 1880s overbust pattern.
The desired look for the corset:
So I cut all pieces except for the ones that will be embroidered. I need some fabric around to fix the embroidery hoop.
A picture of the pieces with the transfered motivs:
The local shops don't carry it, I only found the chain at the department store.
Anyway as I'm getting the Prym closure I used the pattern they have online to define the size and shape of the bag.
Inspired by this bag of 1879:
I designed the embroidery matching the flowers on the exam model and corset
Next weekend is the town festival again and my parents will stop by, so I most likely won't get much sewing and crafting done then. Better work a bit ahead. ;)
Okay, I should go to bed now. I really shound get rid of my very bad habit of going to bed so late... it's not healthy... any advice on finding discipline and motivation for that?
Have a nice Sunday
