Continuing the corset

Continuing the corset

My journey in corset making continues! I’ve taken in the corset seams and shaped the waist a bit to hopefully give it a more hourglass shape. And after postponing for sometime, I finally got the courage to cut into my precious broche coutil. The instruction is for single layer underbust, but I decided to useContinue Reading →

Corset in progress

I finally had a chance to start on my corset! I started by comparing the Laughing Moon Underbust corset pattern with the pattern from the Japanese corset book.

Something new: Making Corset

Something new: Making Corset

Have you ever caught something like this? I think it can be called seamstress’ block. These past few weeks I’ve been really wanting to sew something but no idea at all.

Kids jacket in progress

Can you recognize the jacket? And no, it’s not a Halloween costume for Sidra. Recently I told Sidra that since the weather was going cooler, I would make him a jacket, then I asked if he had anything particular in mind. Maybe I shouldn’t have asked him first and just carry on making the jacketContinue Reading →

I need more separates in my wardrobe and a pair of simpleContinue Reading →

Starting the bombshell dress

Apparently the repair was faster than expected, the repair shop sent my sewing machine back yesterday! The big box arrived in the morning and I danced happily all day. No more machineless week! I used it right away to finish my husband’s jeans. They only need to be hemmed now and I’m waiting for my husbandContinue Reading →

What I did today

What I did today

Sidra had some friends coming today. Since being in the same room with jumping and screaming little boys is not my idea of fun, I retreated to my sewing room upstairs and looked for things to do. These curves are so challenging and fun at the same time! Loving it so far! Both fabrics areContinue Reading →
