Corset Dresses

At the end of last 2013, I took a corset making course with a friend in the Atlantic Sewing Guild. Seems I haven’t posted about it because I never got a picture of how well it fitted on my model, rather than the picture on my dress form below.

I have been writing quotes for a few months now on this site, but I also love reading them for inspiration, or just attitude some times. As I start redesigning and sewing my work wardrobe this weekend, I got some fashion quotes that stirs a little designer attitude in me, but also just general attitude I’m going to have when I wear some of this stuff.

What I wouldn’t have given to be a mind reader then!

Anyway, here comes the fashion quotes and attitudes! See if you can spot some of these coming out in my future designs! I’ll also eventually write some of my own fashion quotes. :-)

The MUSLIN Pajama Top

I am currently on another round of dress shirt fitting for myself with help from others, so I’d be making some muslins till I get it right. Seeing how many I went through on the last round of self fitting, and knowing I’d be starting much closer to the end product this time, I got the brilliant idea of making muslins out of flannel, and seeing them through to the finish to be pajama tops!
