For some reason, I'm having a hard time working up the will to finnish these blasted stays. I'm almost finnished. I have a few more eyelets to sew, and the binding. I also need to cut and tip the boning. Maybe that is what the problem is. I really detest cutting boning. I'm always worried the wheel I use will break an send shards hurtling through the air to wreak havoc on my person! Guess I'll just have to bite the bullet and get it done.
I plan on settling down with the eyelets to watch the third installment of "The Complete Jane Austin". Tonight it's "Mansfield Park". http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/masterpiece/mansfieldpark/index.html
I really do need to finnish these soon so I can drape the Archery Dress over them. Did I mention that I love draping?
I tried it for the first time on thursday, and it is so much more satisfying than flat pattern! I can't wait till my dress form comes in, so I can practice at home.
