A good foundation...

My first project that I wanted to complete was a Victorian day dress. I saw the very popular Simplicity civil war day dress, and wanted to make it. To start with, I needed to make the undergarments to support the gown. Since this was technically my first sewing project, I thought I'd better start with a simple project - I chose to make a chemise (it's what I'm wearing underneath the corset above) and then move on to the corset. I was pleasantly surprised at how easily the corset went together, and it was actually one of the easier projects I've done to date. The hardest part was putting in the grommets in the back - I had blisters for days!Posted by Hello
