Really. It’s not.

In case you’re wondering, I gave in today and ordered fabric to make a corset. After enough nudging and stuff, I caved.

Pink cotton coutil for the heavier bits, from Richard the Thread.

I’m still making my graduation robes, since I refuse to pay $50 for polyester.

I love socks, lace, and all sorts of ‘traditional’ knitting subjects. I studied Classics and textile history (independent minor) at Uni and have a love of anything ancient. That said, I also like to mix it up with modern shapes and silhouettes, often with a little tradition thrown in for fun.
