I’ve been working on the bustier, but I’m waiting to get my final two pieces of boning before I can really finish it off. I did cut out my lining today. I wanted to line it with silk crepe de chine, but I couldn’t find the right color, so I decided to use silk habotai. As you can see, I used the muslin for my pattern. I’ll use dressmakers’ carbon to trace the stitching lines on it tomorrow, and I’ll sew it up. Then hopefully I’ll have the boning from Susan early next week and I’ll be all set to finish this.
I’ve spent the last several days reorganizing my office and studio/classroom in preparation for a really exciting event! I’ll tell you all about it when the plans are finalized. It’s going to be great. Keep an eye out here!
Speaking of exciting, you still have 2 more days (through Tuesday) to take advantage of the Labor Day sale at Gorgeous Fabrics. Almost every fabric is on sale for at least 15% off, and a big selection of fabrics are 25% off!
One last thing – if you get Womens Wear Daily, check out page 2 of Thursday’s edition (September 3). Cotton Inc. takes the gloves off. Wow!
