As mentioned this step is inspired by Summerset, who without knowing safed the project!
After sewing all the channels to the backing I wanted to move on and baste the top to the backing to see how much I needed to cut off and then I discovered that I made a bad bad bad mistake. I had cut of too much of the s.a. of the bust inserts and there it was: A HOLE...
so, what to do?
I'm reading Summersets blog every time she posts something new (love bloglines!) and although I don't like frills and stuff, I like her way of embellishing her stuff and do you remember? Annika send me a book called "Embellished chic", so there it was.
I was to use sequins on my corset (and for the first time ever!) But first I needed to stabilize the corset somehow (or close the hole...) so I ironed a piece of fusible interfacing on
Next I bought black sequins, red rocaille pearls and invisible thread (by madeira) and sewed the sequins to the top fabric by threading the thread thru the hole in the sequin and then thru the pearl and back thru the sequin again, so it looks like this
and splattered them in groups of 3 all over the corset and this is how it looks now
