Working in color today! Hand finishing corsets and pairing their silk ribbon corsages…classic black satin is nice, but salmon, coral, and blue are so cheerful. 😃
What’s a corset without the softness of a petticoat? I love the contrast of lacy layers spilling from a tightened waist, don’t you?
Laced while stitching on a Saturday, my favorite era shape is definitely a fin de siecle. 😄
Long sewing day…time to unlace and watch a movie. Currently enjoying “Hotel Portofino” on PBS via Amazon Prime. Now I want to go to Italy…combined with a little dress up, of course.
Corsets I can understand…but intentionally shelfing your rear view is well, insane.
And yet…we wear them and think they’re awesome. Check out that side view! In 1885, that was tres chic.
