Naantje, wishing you all the best - my mum had a DVT in her leg and I remember how stressful it was for her at the time Sad

My goal this week is to get my exercise sorted! My sister took me shopping and bought me running shoes (seriously, they are awesome dark grey with pink laces, kids shoes as I have small feet (saves some money too!)) a decent sports bra/running leggings and top, we bought exercise balls and everything! Trying to tone up as so far I've only lost weight by sorting out my diet, but I think with exercise too I'll really notice the changes in my body!

We went for a jog around the block the other day and found a free OUTDOOR GYM, literally 2 minutes walk from our house, what are the chances of that! We're waiting to see what sort of people use it before frequenting it often as it's slap-bang in the middle of a dodgey looking housing estate but wow, what a find! So far the two times we've been for a look it's been empty (first time it was raining and we had a go! Second time was yesterday, about 8pm on a lovely evening!) I'm definitely not a good runner at the moment though. I can only manage about maybe 80-100m before I get a stitch and can't breathe Sad But I WILL work on it and improve! We went for a 3.4 mile power walk/jog/run yesterday which was rather nice, if a bit stressful!

Hey folks, me again! The lemon bleach thing didn't work.. it still black and DARK! It's acetate velvet.. maybe the colour won't budge Sad

Anyway, whilst I'm working on the roses of my other dress at home and by hand, I've picked up where I left off on another dress from WAY back in this thread, here's the last time we saw it:

And this is the progress I've made today:

Granted, it's not the most amaaaazing transformation so far, but this one went away in a bag because I felt it was getting uglier by the stitch, but now Ive got it out again I'm looking at it in a whole new light!

I've got the remains of a white cotton skirt lining and some lace having a bath in my washing up bowl at the moment surrounded by tea, this will create a petticoat type underskirt to help with that gaping hole at the front to create a bit more dignity for the wearer! The zip has been an issue with this dress ever since I put the damn thing in, so I may have to re-think the opening of it but hey - that's what's great about this style! Mistakes become a BIG part Cheesy:D:D

So far so good, I still need to blend the bodice into the skirt as it looks too blockey right now but it looks so much better than before - I think!

I've lemonned my corset!! lol. I have tested a bit on the inside so now playing the waiting game! If it doesn't work I'll just work on it with dark colours but dark isn't really my thang y'know! Cheesy

dewshinesdopp, looking forward to seeing some progress shots, the corset looks fab as is!

This is totally AMAZING! Well done on completing it, I have like three of these sitting unfinished in a big bag in my studio! lol. I love all the details and how bold it is! If you plan on making another we'd LOVE to see you over on our sew-along thread Cheesy:D:D http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=354356.0

Thanks for all the ideas! The corset is lined in a different fabric but the velvet does wrap around slightly as an interfacing, so I will test it out on that bit first Smiley I don't want it to turn red but feel it may - I remember accidentally splashing bleach all over my school trousers once during an art class and then went bright red!

I'll go with the lemon juice first - do you know if I can use the bottled stuff? I have like over half a bottle in the fridge left over from pancake day that isn't going to get used for anything else. I'll check out what the velvet is made of tomorrow afternoon Smiley I know nothing about velvet - my friend has a PHOBIA of it though.. the way it feels when stroked backwards, apparently... ooooook!

This is amazing! I can never find cool old stuff that makes me think "ooh, this would look good taken up/in/modified". I can't wait until I DO find stuff and can do awesome things like this! Kudos ♥
