Allie Mo, SASS No. 25217 Posted October 15, 2011 Share Posted October 15, 2011 Can she sew? Yes Does she have time? No Her Mother does & so does a friend, but neither live within 500 miles of us. I don't know (and she doesn't either) about quality corsets and things like that - and not being able to handle or try on is worrisome. Hi Chief, I understand. That is why it is best to start simple, talk to others after seeing something she likes. She might make time to sew a few special items. I was working full time when I started shooting, we shot at least once a week, and I sewed costumes. I sure don't know how I did that... Guess it was all about inspiration and motivation. Since retiring, it takes me forever to finish a sewing project. Also, we do not have children. So, my off time was my own. I only have one corset and I made it. So, I'm no help on purchases. I do know a good quality one would have metal bones not plastic. Regards, Allie Mo PS When a properly fitting corset is laced snugly, one should have an approximately 3" gap in back, which can be covered by a "privacy panel" (flap under the laces). I'm sure our darlin' La Bandita could help her with fitting and her corsets have the metal bones. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
