Very beautiful. Wonderful job at the hand stitching.
katzkuche506144 answered:
Thank you, Deanna. It's been a LONG time since I did lots of hand sewing, funny how it all comes back. I can't wait to buy the Jersey from AC when I'm in the states.
Nixxi asked:
Oh it's lovely - great work - you must be very proud of the corset. Wear it and let the compliments flow!
katzkuche506144 answered:
Thank you, Nixxi! I WISH it was THE jersey from Alabama Chanin, interlock works, BUT, it is NOT the same as using the jersey cotton. I'm working on the Corset top again but WITH AC fabric, cant wait to post along with the Bolero! All I can say is...I AM ADDICTED!
Rowena Lohman asked:
Thanks for posting this! This is one of the first versions I came up with when I was googling the AC corset - you really helped inspire me to complete my first one! I think, overall, I prefer your more minimalist version where the neckline work really is the star - but I'm sold on any of these being fun to make!

Hi Rowena, Thank you! Wow, I have made so much more since I made this top! Are you using a single layer or double layer of fabric? Gorgeous feeling in 2 layers! Have fun with yours! This top is NOT AC fabric, used a jersey interlock, not quite the same, ends do not roll. This was my practice piece, Now I have tons of AC fabrics!
Rowena Lohman asked:
I did do 2 layers, but it was a very lightweight t-shirt jersey and rolls a bit at the hem - I might do something about that at some point. I'm looking forward to buying some "official" AC fabric once I'm back in the states.
