Stage two. Rerun is helping.

"Wait," you ask, "what happened to stage 1?"

 

Nothing. I forgot to take photos.

 

Let me back up.

 

My friend owns Mayfaire Moon Corsetry. She has a commission to build a Dr. Who Tardis corset. While she is a master corsetmaker, this particular corset involves areas outside her expertise.

 

I may not be able to run a sewing machine, but I can engineer the technical details of this garment. So. I offered to help her out.

 

Stage one: She sent me her pattern from Philadelphia. I sat around in the middle of the night copying the base pattern pieces to bond paper on a light box.

 

Originally, I had planned to go to Canal Plastics and have the pieces custom cut. Then I realized I was being an idiot. I didn't need to go to Canal Plastics. I needed to go to TARGET. Yes, Target. So stage two: I go down to Target (soundtracked by Aesthetic Perfection: Pale, on repeat) and walk out with two heavy weight shower curtain liners. One clear, one frosted. I brought them home, at which time Rerun decided to help.
