Feeling Covered.

Continuing on working on updating my 1863 underclothes.
A New Corset cover.
My old one... Had to many *cough* plastic buttons to try and do at 6:30 in the morning while teeth are chattering thinking of when you can get the fire started to get warm.
plus the pattern is a bit to late for that era.
So to design my own pattern.
I had a picture to go off from my Godeys lady's book.
I figured out that all
I really needed to do was make a basic bodice then lengthen the bottom.
Plus make the neck rounded.

This was one of the first things that I did all on my new machine,
plus I was able to do button holes by myself!!!!!
(No plastic buttons.)

Another thing to cross off the list!
Happy Sewing~


  1. So pretty! I love underpinnings...there's something so fresh about their simple whiteness. Lovely. :)
