Oh, I should add... the cat is just fine.   She was getting into my fabric stash and jumping where she shouldn't be by that evening.

posts like yours are why i spend all my crafting time on this site rather than actually crafting. bless yours and your little cat's hearts....i'm cracking up at the thought of a swearing, frustrated crafter already being driven to drink--THEN having to deal with cat puke. that's COMEDY. it's all worth it, though, because your work is gorgeous. i like the corset with the non-pvc busk, personally...but i think it would look great either way!

having done the hate-on of PVC.. tissue paper or newsprint in strips just wide enough to cover feed dogs and presser foot...

and for the contrast channel for a busk if it was big enough (read wide enough) it might be a place to put a tiny row of embroidery or even a bit of appliqu... but I'm stupid ambitious that way...

I've done the tissue, too.  I just hate sitting there picking teensy bits of it out of ever stitch.  And I worry it might make the stitches a bit less tight than they would be otherwise, which is already a concern since I use a long stitch.

That is fantastic!  Love it, though it caused you much pain. Wink  That's fabulous that you have a photographer to capture your creations, too.  It looks stunning on her.

I usually don't have to fiddly pick paper bits.. but that may be a commentary on my having a huge roll of the paper stabilizer for machine embroidery and Not having an embroidery machine.  It looks like tissue and mostly acts like tissue but it may not Tear like real tissue.  For newsprint it's always been sew, fold excess over the stitching fold back and tear (mostly cleanly) away.

mileage clearly varies... and I have no answer for the very real concern of looser stitches... but given how fast folks change their fashion minds most of my coserty winds up in the back of the closet before it wears out, and the exceptions are all cotton and used under recreational clothing..

i think it's great.
and i love the fabric! its different from asian looking satin prints always used for corsets, in a good way.

i like the idea of contrasting center, but just at the bigger ones. i think that it would be too much on the smaller ones.
