I didn't anticipate needing one myself, but the The Roaring 20s is close - every February in the Blue Mountains. I'm hoping to go to a daytime event, and before I can make the dress, need an appropriate brassiere for my substantial acreage. I'm hoping to use the pattern in Jill Salen's Vintage Lingerie.
Other than if it will be effective, I'm concerned to know how I'll be able to fasten it. It was designed to fasten by hook & eye at the side seam.
Except due to my height (thus short arms), and stout self I'm physically unable to do that. Could I lace it closed under the CF and then hook & it down the bust seam - like the tudor gown Hunnisett has where the stomacher pins over the front lacing gown.
Does that make sense??
I've also become obsessed with making it in a tea-rose broche coutil, although I don't have any. So I'm going to visit Metro Fabrics on Saturday and hope they still have a floral broche in a sort of pink. Even just broche, and I'll dye it!
Obsession can be both good & bad. If it motivates me to start sewing, then I'm likely to get the happy-sewing-juju back.
