All sewn up and ready for a fit - R
The corset has been recut and is now basted together, waiting for a fit check tomorrow morning. Now that it is somewhat together, I ordered the corset busk and the steel boning for the back. I'll be using spiral boning for the rest, but the back needs to be stiff. A website called dragontowncorsetsupply.com is where I ordered from, but I've also used www.corsetmaking.com for supplies before. Both have been reliable sources for corseting notions.
I didn't get as much done tonight as I'd hoped. This seems to be a recurring theme with me, Tomorrow I'll cut out my pagoda muslin and the frock coat muslin. Lisa is stopping by for a quick fit on her polonaise and to pick up a petticoat that she's going to modify for Valerie. It will be a long and busy day tomorrow, but for now, the corset must lie fallow.
