|These are my no dart blocks|
|Drafting class notes from the community college course|
|First test bodice using polycotton non-stretch fabric|
Then the final make is a corset and skirt combo. This time I decided to adjust a similar styled vest and convert it to a corset. I just couldn't find the right corset and decided to grab a Simplicity costume pattern as the base.
|Original vest tested for size|
|Practicing with polyester boning. Will soon try using steel boning as a comparison.|
I don't know as yet if any of these design ideas will work but I'm having a ball trying.
So I'm hoping that by the time I get these two dresses finished, the second part of Series 1 will be on tv and I can sit back and enjoy the costumes again.
