    Wait till the wife sayssss

    Hey wait till your wife tells someone how you sew better stiches than the last piece of clothing she bought had. I've heard it already and my computer room is now referred to as my sewing room.

    I was lucky to have a grandmother that taught me to use a sewing machine when i was 10.

    I am looking forward to more projects, I think a tarp is next.

    I love the idea of corset making. Unfortunately I dont trust myself to remain professional enough. Hey, at least Im honest about it.

    Also, we have a radio advertisement down here at the moment for industrial safety gear that fits the op scenario perfectly. I'll abbreviate it coz I dont remember the whole thing, was amusing though.

    "Shopping is something your wife does, shoes,food, clothes, you get the drift......When a man needs something, he goes out and gets it. So xyz safety gear is not a shop, its a get."

    So Joannes is a get, and your getting, like a man. Shopping is for girls.

    I personally find it amusing walking into a fabric shop (Im a large'ish bearded kinda rough looking bloke btw) and seeing the strange looks I get when I, a) Ask for various sewing related parephenalia, and b) Talk the talk when the ask questions they seem to think I dont/shouldnt know.

    Thanks to HF for providing a large chunk of that info
    I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives.

    Hippofeet, you could always get your girlfriends friend to do the duct tape thing herself then mail it to you. I have made a corset before and I really suggest getting her to do that so you can have her exact size. Corsets are fussy.

    If you can, get steel clasps for the front too. The plastic ones are garbage.

    +1 on the mail. They is among the fussiest garments to make. Make a muslin setup first or other cheap fabric. You just need the inner liner. Don't worry about the bone stays yet. You just wnat to make sure the thing fits the way it should. The shaping will come when the bones are installed on the final garment.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.
