Well, I figured I'd quickly post some pictures of my progress so far--they've been hanging out on my flickr for a bit.
First we have my paint-shop modified pattern...
Since, you know, I'm a bit too curvy for a slim-lined teens corset. I mean, I feel like we're nearly getting into the flapper era, here--the era where women visually minimized hips into near non-existence!
Then there's a sketchy photo of most of the materials I'll be working with...
And finally a picture of my mock-up!
Now, I do have photos of the mock-up fitting, since I got a bit carried away and worked quite a bit ahead (using some of my own methods, but it's great to hear about how others--including the sew-along organizer--do things!) But I'm trying to keep those hidden until it comes to the right time. :)
In the mean time I gave in and joined Pinterest, since I think everyone and their mother is on it, too. I'm a bit annoyed at some things (I have to have a twitter or facebook account...what?), but overall I realized that it's kind of like what I've done on my computer for years: saved a bunch of "inspiration" pictures. (Years, later I'm like, "what the hell is all this crap", and now I will spend another few years erasing all of it from my computer as I find it.) At least on Pinterest it's not clogging up my harddrive, and it's much more easily viewable, if I do say so myself.
Anyway, I've created an inspiration board for my sew-along corset.
And there you go!
