The Corset

I have been very busy the past month. My daughter is getting married at the end of April and of course I wanted to make the Wedding dress.

After trying on dresses at a bridal store to figure out what style she looked best in, we decided that she looked best in a fitted bodice with at flared skirt. To make every thing look and fit nice I decided that a well fitting corset was a necessity. (Don’t we all want a little help? Just pull those strings in tight.)

EM works nights and I work days. We never see each other, that made fitting the corset very hard. So with the help of Josie we made a duck tape dress form. I then started making the corset and over the past month with a lot of redoes’ I got the pattern right for EM and the wonder is finished.




Now on to the dress.

I'm so happy that you made a duct tape mannequin. What a bunch of happiness in a roll. And, the corset looks fabulous, and I'm sure Em will look fabulous as well.
