LOL I do too only it was in white and black.  I made hubby some lounge pants... he calls them his boners!!  LOL  He thought it was herringbone material and kept calling them boners and i couldnt figure out why.   The name has stuck.. toothers doesnt have the same ring. 
And that is a wicked cute jacket!!

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: two recent corsets I've made on: November 25, 2007 09:15:35 AM
I sooooooooooooo want to learn to make corsets.  I have an odd body shape due to rapid weight loss and i cant afford custom ones and the off the rack never fit right.  These are beautiful.  I need someone who lives in or around the Nashua NH area who would like a pupil.  HAHA Grin
Seriously, everyone makes it out to be so much harder than it is.  If you can sew, you can do it.  Start with a purchased pattern to get the general idea for construction, from that point you'll learn enough of the basics to know how to draft from scratch or to draft up tiny patent images from the turn of the century. 
Go slow, pin like crazy around all those curves, and never skimp on materials.  Nothing worse than making a beautiful corset and having the back turn into a mess because you got cheap eyelets from Joann that pop out when you tighten it instead of ordering nice two-part grommets (not that I would, um, know from having that happen to me years ago or anything. heh.).

My concern is that I have an extremely weird body shape.  I had gastric bypass 4 years ago and I have ALOT of extra skin on my lower abdomen and it isnt flattering.  I can tightlace about 10 inches!!  (I am wicked squishy) soooooooo until i get my repair surgery clothing i make for myself isnt always flattering.  I will have to just suck it up and try it.  HAHA

OMG childhood flashback.  I grew up in the middle of VT with one department store in a 40 mile radius so we didnt get much of the cool sheets but i had those when i was a kid.  That is sooooooo amazing.  I am green with jealousy.  Your creation brings me back to being a little girl.  Thanks for the memories.  LOL

This is my first picture post.  I am more of a lurker.  I hope this works. 
I usually make clothing items but i wanted her child to have something that she could keep with her for years to come.  I made the bear and the dress.  My friend loved it and i hope her daughter does to!



Tell me what you think!

My hubby and I just got handfasted in a medieval themed wedding this past May.  It was so much fun.  I really need to post some pics of the outfits i did.
