how to not quite follow a pattern
I enjoy sewing...self taught of course...not great but not too bad, it's all about enjoying it right? Well I do, I like to try my hand at everything...but you guessed that by now right?
I began making a 50's style dress from a pattern (Vintage Vogue 2561), and it was going really well but then I stopped following the pattern and decided to change it just a little...into an apron, so from the front it looks like a dress but from behind it is an apron, I even attached a petticoat to foof it out a bit in traditional style.
YES IT IS A CORSET UNDERNEATH...I HAVE FOUND THAT WEARING ONE HAS HELPED WITH MY VERY BAD POSTURE...AND LOOKS UBER COOL TOO, THE ONE IN THE PIC IS A "WASPIE". IN TOTAL I OWN 3 CORSETS THAT I HAVE BOUGHT...YES I HAVE A PATTERN TO MAKE MY OWN WHEN I FIND THE TIME.
A great place to find some divine high compression corsets is Gallery Serpentine
