Corset Rehab

First of all, thank you to the fallen on this Memorial Day. Below is a print from an antique post card I’d bought at the Gypsy Caravan a few years ago:

  
Last week was crazy busy. Today’s feature, corset rehab. I finished a corset panel for a client. The corset she’d bought had some tears which I’d fixed. Then I created the panel, cutting the leather from good pieces I already had. 

 
The trim came from a year old purse I’d loved but was falling apart.  

Trim cut and measured:

 
I hand stitched the edges of the panel. This is not for the faint of heart. It took a strong needle and almost three hours to complete.  

Added the grommets and trim to the existing corset and panel, done! 

  
 Please follow at #RaisetheRoof, #RTR, #FOW for progress on the “Under the Sea” playhouse. It will be picked up soon!

I like to take a moment to thank my British readers yet AGAIN! I hope you are enjoying Strax and the Widow and The Vampire’s Little Black Book series!! I hope to return to your lovely country soon.

As always, thank you for reading!
