1904 Waist

Yes I know I haven't blogged for a long time.
Life being far to busy plus the up loader on this thing makes it to where it takes all day to upload one post. I will try to be better in the future.


1904 waist #1.
I finished the bodice a few months ago, and have worn it many times.
I can't remember what pattern I used....sorry, if I remember I will put it up.
The fabric is cotton calico, light brown with green print.

It turned out OK. The thing I don't like the most about this bodice
is the fact that the arm holes are far to small. After wearing it all day, when I take it off I have chaffing around my shoulders and arms...This can easily be fixed on my next bodice.

Got to love that great S curve.

I did the more authentic way of putting the lining in with the waist band.
since the skirt goes over the bodice, I had to think of a way to make so the skirt would still be supported and the "puff" in the front would stay all day even after running around playing games.
I solved this problem by going the authentic way. Fancy that, they knew what they where doing!

In my next post I will be doing a recape of all I have been doing while being lazy and not posting anything up in the past month...

Happy Sewing~
