First of all, an exciting story!
Last week I went to the dentist
with Hubby ,
because I can't drive
and I'm a little nervous of dentists
(I used to be terrified,
I'm getting better.
He's a nice dentist)
When we left the dentist
it was snowing and
half an hour later
the roads were impassable,
the only route out of the city was closed
and we were stuck.
We walked three miles in the snow
I know three miles isn't far,
and the snow wasn't thick.
but I wasn't dressed for this.
I was wearing battered, leaky tennis shoes)
to Hubby's church
where the very nice priest
opened the flat in the church hall
and let us stay overnight.
(not Native American.
Indian, from India)
and fed us amazing chicken curry.
If you're going to wear a corset,
you need something to put in a corset
I tried Marie without her
but she did look a little...unbalanced.
So I made her a couple of
pillows to stuff down the front.
So, now she has a corset
and something for the corset to squash.
Here is Marie sitting nicely
being fitted for her corset.
I won't be using bright green ribbon,
but this neon colour did give me a chance
to look at several different ways of lacing Marie.
The lacing at the bottom
looks nice, but
Marie will be wearing
panniers on her hips.
So she'll be laced from bottom
Now she has a corset,
with embellishments being added,
and her anachronous knickers
and her lacy stockings.
She still needs;
stuff in her wig
