Wow my friend's list sure has been quiet this week! Not that I've been doing much to fill the silence... just refreshing my page a lot. :P So for the rest of you to-busy-to-sew-lj-refreshers out there - behold the stays!! As you can see I have unashamedly pinched the line of seaming from the pattern Katherine just used but really it's too pretty not to pinch!
I'm very pleased with the stays, they are pretty, MA-ish and fit very well. Unfortunately I’m not pleased with any of the pics I've managed to take on them on me. So you get Narcissa as a model until I can try again on me. :> Oh yes and a little preview of how the outfit will look with the quilted petticoat - yummy!
Worked a bit on the pet en l'air today. I'm happy so far, the side view looks perfect. That center box pleat is bugging me though. It's plenty full at the top but looks kinda skimpy at the bottom. Must mess with it a bit more.
Your stays look fabulous!!! Really, really, really, really beautiful! :) And of course you do need me to tell you but the outfit with the petticoat is going to look amazing. I cant wait to see it in person!
Ahhhh!!!!! So awesome! It's all so beautiful, I don't even know what to do! *runs around crazily* ;) Awesome job. And inspiring too - it really makes me frantic to get home and work on my 18c stuff! :)
