It'll have to do. I've run out of time for fiddling if I want to get a dress made by mid-July.

Just when I thought I could move onto the finishing, I discover a couple.of things that need fixing. I just want to get out of the underwear stage already!

I finally, finally, finally, finished sewing the eyelets into the Victorian corset! Now it's onto the boning and binding!

Was feeling pretty good about myself on Tuesday night.  All those boning channels were finished, the pattern for E was scaled up, and by 10:pm it was sewn. 
As I'm merrily stitching along, I think to myself, "Self, this looks a bit on the small side. "  But I ignore my better judgment and keep going.  The only thing I can say for myself, is at least I didn't put on the sleeve.
Come the next morning, I have E try on the mock-up.  She can get one arm thorough, barely, but the back was so narrow, it barely covered half of her back, and of course, there was no way on God's green earth the other arm was going through.

Here's where I went wrong..... )

*Mad cackle*  I have finished the boning channels! *more mad cackling*  Now to cut the bones, make the eyelets (why yes, I am a glutton for punishment!), bind and trim!  So good to finally be done with the never ending channels!

My goal for today was to get the other sleeve lining sewn in on the paletot, and to do 2 boning channels on the corset.  I got the sleeve sewn in while at [ profile] hruggles  this afternoon, and I just finished sewing on 3, count 'em 3, boning channels.  That means I've got 11 out of 20 channels sewn, officially over the 1/2 way mark!
Of course, this brings thoughts of trim.... )

Lazy Day

After 3 days of non stop cleaning, I decided to take a lazy day today. Did nothing for as long as possible. As a result, I didn't get as much sewing done as I had planned. This doesn't mean I was entirely unproductive, and I do have pics to prove it. Not very good pics, coming from the mobile, but pics non the less.

I'm seriously loving the fit! (that's the first 2)
I've got the lining stitched down on one side, and pinned in the other. (that's the next 2)

Lastly, can you guess what E'S new sport is?

not so great pics here...... )
