I’m going to be dribbling out a little bit more of this project but mostly I’ll wait to reveal the final project when it is all complete and can be modeled by the bride.
This week I’ll be working on a new jacket mock-up and finishing all the hand stitching on the overskirt/bustle as well as getting all the corset binding hand sewn on neatly. A great project to come back to after a lazy relaxing week vacation away from the workroom.
