On the other hand, I was struck on the way home last night that I don't have to stop sewing completely at the moment for a lack of a corset, I can , in fact, sew my skirts. I know my waist won't change much and I can start drafting the patterns for that and stuff. I would like to complete one gown skirt and with any luck I can complete a day wear bodice and an evening wear bodice this month before my birthday. I went on a fabric safari in my basement that brought up a whole bunch of half forgotten plans. I think it would be really nice if i could wear a new dress for my birthday. However, I am unsure what my birthday plans are..... I really want to go to KC and hang out with friends and get plastered.
