That is awesome.  And you've got Sansa hair, too!

The look is perfect.

That's an amazing first corset!

Scrolling the page makes those polka dots seem to get up and dance.   Shocked

Thanks for this!  I've started experimenting lately because my hair has been so dry and frizzy and generally unhappy.
I keep shying away from honey just because the bugs around here have been soooo bad after this crazy mild winter that we had last year. 

I guess I've gotta make some additions to my shopping list!

Beautiful work!

That's adorable!  I'm loving the cutesy fabric for a Renn corset!

I've been swearing for at least a year and a half that I'm going to make a renaissance corset.. I did start one ages ago!  ..But somehow my corseting keeps getting sidetracked to more Victorian patterns.  Why it is that I fixate on medieval and Renaissance garb, but Victorian undergarments, I haven't yet figured out..

Is your machine generally finicky, or just with knits?  Knits are about three billion times easier to sew on a serger.

Don't rule out silk-- there are some really good deals out there.  Wools aren't cheap either.  Silk has a reputation for luxury, but it's not generally the most expensive of fabrics.  It's more expensive than cotton, but there's lots of inexpensive silk out there, especially if you keep an eye out on sites that have good sales.

Have you hit the pattern sales at Joann and/or Hancock yet?  (Or hobby lobby.. I think they do the sales too.)  A word of warning.. those pattern sales are addictive!  I'ts so easy to justify buying patterns when they're on sale for $.99 or $1.99, and the envelopes seem small, so it never feels like it's going to be a storage issue like with fabric.  Until you one day realize, after having built a trunk, that you have too many patterns to fit them all into the trunk.  (Just don't ask how I know.   Wink )

Check the websites of the major pattern companies for ideas first.  Then you can go in with a good idea of what patterns you need to sew the fabric you have.

Those look great! 
Really beautiful!
9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: How to make bias tape without the fancy gismo on: August 09, 2011 05:31:29 AM
I use those little Clover bias tape makers..  the ones you get for a couple bucks that are like just the tip of a Simplicity bias tape machine, so you cut the strip, and then feed it through, following the gizmo with your iron. 
So I still use a gadget, but a nice cheap unfancy one that makes it easier. 
10  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: How do you organize your stash? on: August 09, 2011 05:26:47 AM
ha ha kidding. This was the great fabric sort of 2011 a month or so ago. I dont have a craft room so I organized everything in tubs according to the type of fabric and labeled the containers to stack nicely in my garage!
ROFL, looks like the pooch enjoyed it, too!

I've actually started making plants to build some wooden chests for fabric storage.  Ultimately I'll use cedar because it keeps bugs away and all, so it should be good for wools, but I'm going to start with whitewood because it's cheaper and I don't really know what I"m doing so far as building yet.  I made a model in Google Sketchup.  I might procrastinate by making another model in Blender.  But Google Sketchup is generally better for stuff you plan on turning into something real.  But building virtual things I already have some clue about!   Grin
But anyway, my stash is.. uh.. kinda taking over..  and the parts that don't have "real" storage just aren't pretty.  I'm figuring with some wooden chests, I'll have fabric storage spots that can double as benches/tables/footrests and generally make everything look less cluttered.  'Cuz I have massive sewing clutter.
