I am the queen of procrastination. I knew early on that I wanted to make 3 dresses for an event at the end of may. I did alot of pinteresting and mental planning.

Re: Second, more educated, opinion :)

Allright, I'm guessing I must be completely off or just too unclear to get any reactions at all... I still would like your opinion though.

Re: Greetings from Vänersborg

Well isn't it a small world! :D Imagine finding someone from the same small town in Sweden on a forum about Victorian sewing! :D Did you use to hold classes in corset making? Always hate that I missed the chance to take that course. Hope both your sewing and amp-building is going well :lol: Mvh Lena
