Hooray!

My busk came in the mail today!

I ordered it last week off of Etsy. Of course, with Labor Day weekend, and then the package being “missent”, it took quite a bit longer to arrive than usual, but that was okay.

I like to build my historical wardrobes up from the inside out, so after I make the corset, I’ll probably start the rest of the undergarments, petticoats, etc.  The annoying part about that is how long it takes to actually get to the dress making! Ahh!

I have a little plan for an 1880 dress, but it’s a pretty big plan, and I’m not entirely sure that I’ll be able to pull it off, so I won’t say much about it. 🙂

I have about a 1/2 yard of green silk fabric that I will use for the 1880 corset. The exact color is a sage-hunter green type of color, and reminds me of a darker part of a peacock feather.

On a side-note, I still have pictures on my camera that I need to upload. I need to get better about that, hehe!

  1. This is one reason that I’m loath to start any new periods! So much work to be done before the fun parts. I do actually like making corsets but I just don’t like how much they cost.
