Mom's Bodice for Faire

NEW PIC from TRF!!

Can Tab Crown Hat and Bodice

At this point, I'm experimenting with more challenging projects. I found a local short-lived suppler of tabs and WAS rolling in them for awhile. Muhahaha! So, I started mom's bodice/corset. We wanted inexpensive, not so h/a outfits for the Scarby 2008 renaissance faire here in Texas.

I still plan to add some extra paintstick boning to straighten out the front. But, overall she was very pleased and comfortable at the faire.
