One down, one to go; note on hems
The Red and Gold corset is complete minus one heart tip. I was sewing them on at my favorite coffee shop when a spot on the comfy couch opened up so I jumped for it. Unfortunately the metal tip dropped during the 6 feet of travel. Now the staff is hoping to find it while sweeping tonight.
I’m sure people were amused to watch me crawling around on the floor for a long time. Luckily I do have more at home. This reminds me of the button that is still stuck in a family members couch. I’ve spent hours trying to get the sucker out but eventually went and purchased a new one to save my sanity.
In other news, the linen damask corset will be boned tomorrow and the binding started. The client comes in friday for a final fitting. Her wool and linen skirt is hanging waiting for final construction. We will determine the hem length hopefully on friday as well then proceed to the bodice mock-up.
My skirts are finished at the hem line and then the length set at the waist before cartridge pleating so the hem is even all the way around. Modern construction consists of setting the waist first and then trimming and finishing the bottom.
