So I'm plugging away on my 1830s corset, and all seems to be going to plan...which is good seeing as how when I picked up my needle and thread yesterday to start sewing it became glaringly obvious to me that it's been a whole month since I've sewn anything and I could totally tell. Bleh.
Messy stitches are messy.
Anyways, instead of whining about how unhappy I am with my sewing (cause that's boring to read about & a bit of a mood killer) I figured I would post some photos from my Pinterest board to show you all my inspo for everything. I haven't fully decided on a cording pattern yet, but I should have enough embroidery floss in my arsenal to really go to town on this bad boy. So we'll see....
Oh! Also - before I forget - if you don't follow American Duchess on Instagram you totally should! We've been posting in the 'story' section of our profile pretty regularly & that's where we've been putting quite a few videos and images of Lauren & mine's sewing projects...just in case you're interested... :)
