Just a small, silly question olenka. For the interfacing, did you sew it or fuse it?
Fusible interfacing will get crinkled. Sad

You're doing great and I can't wait to see it! Velvet!  Cheesy

You and your mother have done a wonderful job!  Cheesy

Congratulations on deciding to make your own corset!  Smiley

If your corset is not longer than Ewa's I don't think you'll have any trouble to sit. I have one of that length (Simplicity 9769, you can see it here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=34445.0), and I have no problem to sit. Of course you can't "sprawl" - that used to be the point of a corset in the first place. But I would certainly not say that a corset will give you an unladylike posture - quite the reverse.  Wink

Most important you need to go around in your corset before your party so that you're comfortable in it! Smiley

They are fabulous Ewa. So impressive! Shocked
You've got everything to make great corsets: the skill, the patience, the imagination, the daring...
That neck corset is an awesome idea! Way to go!

They're all so gorgeous, I can't take my eyes off them.

Thanks so much for showing them... What an inspiration. Smiley

I just bought the July issue at a newstand and it is great! There are so many cute easy projects in this issue. If it is for sale in your area I really recommend getting it.

Gee... I believe I should buy it then. I didn't because the June issue was bursting at the seams with wonderful projects but I finally made only one dress from it...  Embarrassed Lack of time of course!
Mmm... Guess I really should go try and find it today...  Wink

Good for you!  Smiley The July issue is a very good one according to many of my friends (haven't had the time to buy it yet!  Embarrassed)
Enjoy and... share pics of your finishes!  Cheesy

You look gorgeous! Everything's so impressive, you must have felt so pretty and accomplished at the prom! You look like a flower, or a butterfly  Smiley You have perfect taste!

I didn't mean haggling a Saint-Pierre, since it's such a huge place I don't think the shop assistants are allowed to haggle (and indeed would have any interest in it). I meant the little shops all around. Just start saying you've seen the same fabric cheaper across the street, and they'll be offering a better price.  Wink

I agree! How not to love haggling at Montmartre  Wink I treat myself to a trip there... every now and then... when i've deserved it!  Grin

Have you ever tried Loisirs et Crations? Bet you won't leave the store of there empty handed!  Wink
It's often a little on the expensive side though - but it can give you plenty of ideas.
One of the Gibert Joseph stores on the Bd Saint Michel is devoted to crafts.

I aslo discovered a VERY nice crafts shop and workshop only last week. Rue Saint Ambroise in the 11th arrondissement. Just across the street from the LNS "La Gare des boutons", which is 30 rue Saint Ambroise.
