My efforts to train back into my corset are paying off. Today, I set my timer for 30 minutes and laced myself up. When the timer went off, I was busy. I turned it off and continued working in my sewing room. Cutting and snipping away at the fabric. I am making the first of 4 bodices for the brides maid dresses.
The bride was supposed to purchase linen. She purchased a crap load of poplin. Hmmm. Ok... I can work with that. It isn't as nice of a fabric but it is half the price. Then My stabilizer wasn't wide enough. Ok, so I use the white flannel instead. Not a big deal. Snip and cut. Working away.
Next thing I know the kids are asking for lunch. What? It isn't lunch time yet! Yes it is. I lost track of time working in a corset! How in the world did I do that? It wasn't laced down very tight at all but still.... Over 2 hours and I was working comfortably.
I finally had to put my scissors down and take a break. The callus where my scissors rub my knuckle was not happy with me. I need to find a band-aid before I do any more.
Ps. I whined for 30 minutes this morning when Dragon told me to get some corset time in today. I made us excuse after excuse. I am glad I did it. I love how the corset feels and I love how I feel in it!
