Re: Threads Magazine Ribbon Trim Tutorial

Thank you so much for the link! It's so nice to see what it really looks like, rather than how it looks in the illustrations. I feel so inspired by this.

Re: Fabric Questions

I've used the coutil from tutu.com a couple times and I think it is pretty good quality! I liked it better than the twill I used to use for all my corsets.

Re: Fabric Questions

Have you seen the coutil at tutu.com yet?;

It's only $9.80 for white coutil and $13.80 for black.

Re: TV170 - which view?

The little ruffly bustles with horsehair are cute and would be easy to make, but a pillow bustle would be even quicker, cheaper, and easier to make, in addition to giving you more booty than the ruffle one would.

Re: TV170 - which view?

I agree that you should just make a pillow bustle. Petticoats are amazing, but there's no way two muslin petticoats will fill out the back of your skirt enough to not need a bustle or some sort.

Re: Skirt shape

Oh Field's! I haven't been there in years and only went once, to the Grand Rapids location. I got 4 yards of purple silk for only $2 a yard because it was on clearance! **sigh** I love that store.

Re: Boning widths with questions galore.

I used 1/2 inch stays in the back of my corset and it was awful! It forced my spine to be very unnaturally straight and after a few hours it was painful.

Re: Carolina Bells

I didn't write down the new address either, but I think Hugh said it was only going to be changing from .net to .com, but I could be wrong since carolinabelles.com doesn't seem to be working either.

Re: Natural Form Outterwear and Ruchability (?) of fabric

Re: Natural Form Outterwear and Ruchability (?) of fabric

I have the same problem with needing to cover my ears in cold weather. I made a baschlik, which is basically a hood with a scarf attached. I wear mine to school to keep the wind out of my ears when walking around campus and it's amazing. It's acceptable to wear them on their own or you can put it ov...

Re: Helping even out unbalanced Breasts

I have uneven breasts and I cut out a couple little ovals in different sizes out of quilt batting and experimented with the different sizes and combinations of the ovals and placement until I had what I wanted. Then I marked where the padding goes in the corset, made a little fabric cover for the qu...
