Mud, Trails and Corsets
Hiking in corsets? Why not! My underclothes and I braved muddy trails, strange looks and a steep hill or two to get a few outdoor photos at our local Regional Park. I'm happy to report that my white American Duchess Astorias survived the less than perfect terrain and still look brand new, and my corset is still crazy comfy even when scrambling down a rocky hillside.
You can read about the making of the blue corset here, and how I made my corded petticoat here. The drawers peeking from below the petti are my first attempt at reproducing these antique drawers; stay tuned later this week for the second, much improved repro and a pattern!
