Workshop picked up first thing Saturday morning. We put the first layer of pieces together to size it. Once sized we mark the new sewing lines and cut the corrected pieces for the next layer.
In between the sewing we were able to examine some of Carolann's originals. More pictures of the originals can be found on my Flicker album.
As a side note, Carolann is putting on a workshop on making this mantle in June. Visit her website for registration information.
Once we got all the pieces cut we started construction of the corset.
Carolann fitted it for me and then laced it up.
And the finished product. Well...almost...I finished the bottom edging, tension hook, top hook and drawstring at home.
I really enjoy Carolann's classes. She is a great instructor, patient and very knowledgeable on the subjects.
