Lovely weekend and rain on Monday. I so wanted to just sleep in. Ah, well.



I am vacillating about how I want to make the Oblivion corset. Two layers so I can make the wavy bone casings the pattern calls for? If so.... do I do two layers of coutil so I can be SURE the bones don't poke out? Or use that turquoise butterfly brocade that's been sitting in my pile for a while? It seems sturdy enough to hold bones, but I could back it with the silk. THAT would keep the bones in.

But.. a two layer corset. I am not much of a fan of those.

But the BONES would work well in one.


See? Vacillating.

Oh, the coutil is cotton, never fear.


And there are myriad ways of making multi-layer corsets, not to mention 'multi-layer' could mean two, three, four or even FIVE (heaven forfend) layers.


I have to consider this - do I plan to wear this ANYWHERE but underneath something? If not... two layers of coutil would be the simplest. The most boring, yes, but the simplest.


Vacillation continues. oh, boy, but it continues.
