Do you ever have those days where you have so many things that you want to do, but don't know where to start? I'm having one of those...
I'm having a hard time adjusting from the holidays - especially after being sick and spending 3 days in a sleepy stupor... It's hard to get your body back to working all day!
Last night I went out to pick up a few bits and bobs for some new pieces for spring. I thought I'd share with you some things that are inspiring me... I've picked up a bunch of new florals for spring, including a piece that I really, really love - the gauzy mint-blue fabric with the big candy-floss-pink flowers. I absolutely love it! I grabbed about 5 meters of a pink and cream polka dot cotton that has a gauzy texture that looks so cute with it.
I'm waiting patiently for some corset busk and boning to arrive from my supplier. I am thinking I might post some how-to's on corset making if there is interest. I won't do a full sew along, but some tips and tricks for installing busks, using waist tape, etc. Corset making is something I love but haven't done in ages. I am going to use a pattern I drafted in college that I still have kicking around. It's a great basic shape with a sweetheart neckline. I plan to do an over and under bust style, and can't wait until all my materials arrive!
