My goodness, did this week ever fly by! I cannot believe that the first week of school is over and the second is ready to begin - of course, by the time Christmas break nears I will be counting the days (and so will my students) for a much needed vacation- lol!
And what do I have to show for this week, aside from a mound of papers to grade? Why, my red corset! What made me go with a spicy red satin, I can't tell you, but now that I have my corset, it's time to construct my outer garments for the Old West Festival in October. I do have an identical white satin Victorian corset in the works, completely boned, needing only the grommets inserted and the bias sewn on (an up-coming Saturday project) - a girl can't have too many corsets (I figured I'd go with both the Madam and Madonna variations - just keeping it real).
