IF you are considering making a corset and IF you think you’re going to be thrifty and cut your own corset stays from a length of steel, I have one piece of advice for you.
I am miserable and I feel like I’m going to be working on this one project for the rest of my life. Sometimes I can force myself to finish a project by not allowing myself to start another one without finishing the first. The fact that I am now flat broke after my thrift-store pattern raid certainly helps. I have already sunk a couple hours into it today and I feel like I haven’t made an inch of progress. I also didn’t buy nearly enough corset tape, so I have to wait until I pick up my tips to pick up more. Even more time gone! I don’t know what I’m going to do with myself until Tuesday. . .
