So as a little graduation present I decided to Bite the bullet and buy a spoonbusk. I have always really loved them, but they have always seemed unjustifiable cost-wise. Serendipitous to this decision was someone posting a link on corsetmakers for busks for $25!!! With shipping it was still half of what the local stores I found wanted.

I am going to use it for a Victorian corset I mock-uped a while ago, but put aside to work on the 1840's corset. The mock-up had some mixed results, so once I get the mental energy I will start to work on it again.

I had another workshop with Candance Kling though GBACG last Saturday. This time we focused on trims and details made with ribbon (last time was fabric) A lot of the Techniques we used cross over, so they are nice companion classes. These were my two favorite samples:




The colorful one makes me think of an angry sea cucumber :)
I also asked Candace to sign my copy of her book, so now it is extra special!
