I really need something that bring sme instant gratification those days, problem is : all the projects that HAVE to be done are on the time-consuming side.
But at last, I got one small item done. The 1920s bra is finished !


It squishes me almost completely flat, as desired, and is relatively comfortable for my sensitive ribcage. It's definitely thicker than a modern bra, so I'm a little more conscious of what I'm wearing. The outside and the binding are poly satin, the inside is white coutil. The ends of the bra and the places where the buttonholes and buttons go have been reinforced with a second layer of coutil.
Please don't pay attention to the variosu pencil marks, I'll have to wash those away ;)

I'm pleased with it, except for one little problem :

The dress isn't hemmed anywhere, so there'd be even more bra peaking out of the neckline. I think I'll add a small fabric band here...

I have found a red glass pearls necklace to go with the dress, but I'll have to find some other shoes. The sole of one of the pretty gray ones I had is cracked... :(
