Bodice lining & Boning (Posted 6th February 2012)
Started the lining and boning of the bodice today. I Frankensteined a pattern from an old corset pattern, then adjusted it and made my own version and shapes with calico. Had to take it in a few times until I was happy with it - I want the outfit to be as form-fitting as I can make it, like Lucille's is. I may not be a cartoon character with bizzare-looking proportions, but at least Lucille has a small waist and hips, so I want to make my small waist and hips look obvious too!
Another couple more hours and that should be done without a problem.
