i can not get this jacket out of my head.  yours is so, so beautiful, kathyruth.

could someone possibly tell me what yarn is used in the book, so i can move on from fantasizing to planning?

thank you so much for the help.  if i ever get around to it, i think i'm just going to try replacing the collar (and cuffs) of a regular button-up shirt pattern with little ruffles.  if it looks like poop, i'll do some more research.

(thank you to you, too, lamplithavens...thank you to everyone!)

i hope no one feels like i'm dissing their corsets.  i just can't imagine feeling comfortable in one.  i'm a fashion wimp, really.

thanks so much, racehorse87!  

yeah, i don't understand why a designer would build several inches of ease into something like this.  oh well.  i'm one step closer to accepting that muslins are pretty smart things to make.

the front edges aren't turned back...i thought about trying that, but there just isn't much room between them and the side front sections at the bottom.  i'm not really eager to set 14 more eyelets, but it might still be a possibility, somehow.

it seemed like 'using' the lacing on the back would create unpleasant wrinkles.  it was just supposed to be drawn through loops of fabric, though.  you're right...i should check if cinching up the bottom of the back miraculously makes the top of the front fit...

feedback is so nice!

purpleheather, your cherry corset is incredible.  i think i'd have a panic attack if i tried to wear something like that, so i love how happy you look in it.

oh thank you, rottenlittleboys.  i feel like it makes me look lumpy and deflated...even when i've got a couple socks stuffed down the back and i'm holding my breath...

i think i might try to make another one that fits better. 

but i'm so glad you guys like the applique!  that's definitely my favorite part.  wanna see it bigger?


i got the wings out of a library book...i think it was called 'birds in flight.'  (the wings in the tattoo are curved down, like angel wings, so it fits on his forearm)  and i had to suture the heart back together...my boyfriend's isn't like that, and i worry about it.

thanks again for looking!

so i'm drawn to all the cute little laced-up tops peppering these boards, but i can't seem to separate 'corset' from 'oppression of women' in my mind.  one of racehorse87's lovely costumes (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=58628.0) made me realize that what i wanted was a bodice.

i just used mcalls 4107, because it was 99 cents the day i went to joann fabrics.  ms. mcall has this idea i should wear a 12, but i made a 6 and it's still too big.  maybe i can bulk up a little by the time it's warm enough to actually wear it.

there was supposed to be lacing on the back, too, but i left it out, translated one of my boyfriend's tattoos into felt applique, and slapped that back there instead.  i haven't really worked with felt since grade school...i hope i didn't make it too delicate.

less talk, more pictures.



this is my first completed project really inspired by craftster.  so thanks, craftster!

oh that's gorgeous.  and you're brilliant.  i've never wanted to cuddle a digestive system before. 

so is the small intestine 20 feet long?

Great, just what I need.  I looked around, does anyone have any ideas off the top of your head about how I could still knit with a pinched nerve while letting it heal?  Like maybe a brace that will keep my wrist in place?  Cause I'm in the middle of two major projects I need to finish! Sad   Ah well, I'm going to see my doc on friday anyway. 

yeah, i'm sorry.

just for the sake of conversation...i tried a little futuro brace from the drug store.  i think it was called an 'energizing support glove' (basically a spandexy fingerless glove with an elastic band you could velcro around your wrist).  it didn't solve the problem, but it made me feel better for a while...

but for all i know, the problem's in your elbow.  will you let us know what your doctor says?  i'd really appreciate it.
