Creamsicle corset: construction & trim idea
Pressing over a ham:
How it holds the shape after pressing:
It was hard to get the presser foot to deal evenly with the different levels of thickness in this section:
This is embroidered net. I think I want to have it slightly dip into a “v” at front. I like the heavier embroidery along the bottom edge.
But really the scallops would be perfect at the top edge smoothing over the top binding edge like in historical corsets. So do I flip the lace & find another lace trim to put along the bottom of the net? Do I just stitch the net on and leave it raw on the bottom. Do I do it very non-traditional and have the scallops at the bottom and just bind the raw edge of the net into the top of the corset. Hmm…
I’m not trying to make this historical so all these are options. Today I’ll decide and get this girl finished up!
Well not totally finished since I also want to also floss the bottom of all the bones in white and add more boning channels before putting in the lining. In fact I still need to cut out the lining. Sometimes I get ahead of myself and start a project before it is all cut out – a bad habit! But it means I’m excited :)
