This week, I have slowly been working my way through the second draft of the 1873 corset. It shouldn't have taken so long, but it has been a case of snatched moments here and there. After the first redraft, I have also edited pieces as I have sewn the muslin together and then annotated the paper copy with (dated) reminders.
You can see in this last photo the difference in waist lines. It definitely needs to be revisited though the second muslin looks so much crisper with the shortened waist.
I am also getting slightly nervous though about how the final piece will go together, the muslin goes together so well because the fabric is so flexible and I won't have that luxury on the final pieces. Last, but most definitely not least, I now need to decide on some fabrics. Never mind that I can keep tinkering with the pattern, I can't go any further past that point without some fabric!
