Vintage Sewing

Trying vintage

March 26, 2010
Hi there,

I am doing a course in costuming and one of our projects for this year is to make a garment including undergarments from the 18th century.

I have just posted a few images of my panniers and the corset toille in my fitting there will be more to come as I continue with the class, so feel free to watch my struggles with large amounts of materials, box pleating and boning. Hopefully I can inspire others to try a amazing construction from centuries passed. 🙂
