Hooray! Today is the halfway point of the sew along! And at last we're sewing! I enjoyed reading what keeps you going when sewing. You know what else motivates me? Seeing the patterns and mock-up posted on our flickr page and feeling part of a group working together. Teamwork and all. So thank you for participating!
There are two kinds of seams I'll go over today, one for those sewing the post Edwardian pattern, the other for the Corsets and Crinolines pattern. More experienced sewers won't need these explanations, but beginners may appreciate them. Either way, you'll want to sew the corset with a shorter stitch length than the mock-up. Aim for 12-14 stitches per inch.
Take your time, you've got all weekend to sew just 8 or 10 seams.
