So last Friday I went up to T's to spend a day crafting. I should probably say a 'day' crafting, as by the time I'd caught the train up to My Vic and got to her place it was almost 11am. But I started my 1880s corset pattern - traced the pieces from the Truly Victorian pattern, then made a calico mockup. Making mockups of corsets isn't as useful as for most other items, as without the boning and lacing it is hard to know how it will look, but there are things - length, the line at the top, the general sizings - that you can check. I also did some more work on my green gloves - finally got one of the thumbs set and sewn into the trank. Once I had it in place it was fine, but it was giving my several frustrating moments along the way. T was working on some hats, but mostly having fun cuddling and playing with the new kittens. (who are adorable). We sat and watched the cricket and laughed at the cuteness of cats and sewed. A pretty good day.
