Must be the end of the year

I’ve decided that the burst of sewing energy is the result of me not wanting to return to my cubicle.  Last night, I started a corset using Simplicity 2621; I’m currently in the fitting stage.  I still have most of a 20 yard bolt of canvas, but I need to “shop” my remnant bin for the top fabric.  I know I have bits of twill, damask, canvas, and coutil, so this may be multicolored.  The corset is going to be the foundation for a bodice I’ve wanted to make for a while, made of a brown embroidered cotton/linen-look remnant.  I want the bodice to be side opening, and since it will be pieced, I’m using the following as inspiration.

I really like the way the piping is placed that makes it look block-y.  I’ll search my scraps for coordinating strips of fabric once I get to the design stage.  I may have to go to the store for skirt fabric, but I’m trying to work solely from my stash…maybe broadcloth that I was saving for a new shirt.

This will be the first project of the new year, and I’m kind of excited for it.  Off to fit!

Thanks for stopping by!
