I’ve been making not one, but two 1900s corsets at the moment, both of which have been in progress for well over a year, and have both been plagued with EVERY POSSIBLE THING THAT COULD GO WRONG.
Felicity must sense how much they have been stressing me, because she’s been practically glued to the sewing table throughout the process. Not only that, but she’s insisted on being as close to the sewing machine as possible. If she could sleep on the sewing machine’s table, she would!
She’s ended up hidden under the moving sewing on a number of occasions (and has also kept the sewing from moving when she got out from under and sat on it), so I finally got a video of it:

A little bonus: you get to hear the elusive Mr D speak!
Other bonus: even though I was there, and I know that isn’t what was happening, I’m convinced I’m hurling pins on the floor throughout this video.
