so i had this little idea ...


It came to me one evening and I submitted it to Kickstarter the next day.


It's already grown beyond my expectations. It looks like I have a few weeks of craziness ahead of me. I'm already knee deep in MFA thesis work so I have to accept there is no way I'm going to be doing any corset building for a while. I will be posting a few images of corsets snapped behind the scenes at the Kent State University Museum so do stayed tuned. Thank you for your patience and thank you for reading!

    2. One year on yesterday I have just posted my last pictures of the Post Edwardian corset on the Flickr group page. It has been so much fun to build during the sew-along that there has not been one moment I have felt like these were too deep waters for a beginner like me! It has given me the courage to tackle the ribbon corset following the corsets and crinolines pattern and your blog posts. Bring it on 2013!
