A package arrived today.
When I opened it I found this.
The 1650 bodice! And wrapped in packing paper was this.
The 1925 corselet! There was a reason I couldn't find these, they were still in California! I had planned to take them with me when I drove to my new home across the country, but space was tight in my tiny car and I left a few boxes behind. A shout out to Lisa, the best friend anyone could have, who found this box and sent it my way. Thanks Lisa! I miss you!
The grommets are set in the 1844 corset, it's ready for gore fitting this weekend.
Then I'll tie up the loose ends of the corselet and it can move to the completed pile. That means I should have two finished corsets by the end of the year!
