And so it begins...
Yesterday I started the long an arduous process of beading the trim.. heres a picture of my start...

First try at beading

This is the first beading I've ever done, and although not realy hard, I seem to have trouble keeping everything spaced properly. The first line of beads is a bit tight, But I think I'm getting the hang of it, which is good because I have a long way to go.

In other news here's the finished muslin pattern front and back

So we've decied to start with the Flemish peasant bodice that can be found on lady Drea's site, and then alter that to make the German bodice. Sounds easy? Well as it turns out to do this requires starting with the auto generator for the corset pattern then altering that to make the regular bodice pattern which is then altered for the Flemish peasant pattern, which we can then alter to the German Bodice... thats alot of altering. Heres what the mess I made out of this looks like on paper....

Other than that were all waiting for fabric....
