I’m sure you have all been waiting to hear about the corset class in Melbourne and how it went.
Well, it was amazing, fantastic, wonderful. Not because of me, but because all the people who came and took it were amazing, fantastic, wonderful. Just the loveliest group of people you could ever hope to spend the day with. There were 10 fascinating women, each totally different and unique, but all kindred spirits in their love of creation and sewing. I had the best time meeting them, seeing what fabrics they picked for their corset (so many delicious options!), and getting to know them as we worked through the corsets.
And Thread Den was such a fabulous space to work, and so helpful. I wish I lived down the block from it! If you are in Melbourne I definitely recommend paying it a visit (and doing a course there if you are really lucky) – and it’s just down the road from the Fabric Store Melbourne.
So the day itself: I was a little nervous. And it was weird working in a new space. And I misplaced a bundle of corset boning. So things didn’t go perfectly. But overall, I think we had fun, and everyone’s corset looked beautiful, and hopefully the students learned a lot!.
Here are some pictures from the day:
If you are wondering why it took me so long to post about this, I’ve actually been holding off on this post until some of the fabulous ladies who took the course blogged about it themselves. Go check out Kitty’s adorable navy & ivory corset (and her other dresses – *swoon*, and Andy’s amazing Japonisme corset (I can’t believe how perfect her pattern matching is!).
Thank you Thread Den for having me, and thank you, thank you ladies who took the course!
