At Long Last!

I have finnished the short stays.  Finally!  
I even have proof:




What I learned: Gussets are a pain in the arse.  Make binding a little narrower, this was too wide.  
Overall, this was fun, and I will definitely make another pair, that fits a little snugger.  Mabey without the gussets, as they really don't have much wotk to do.

They are definitely a smidge too big.  It seems I have lost a few pounds I could ill afford to loose.  I lost a whole inch in both my bust and waist, if this keeps up I will soon disappear.   D. thinks I need to eat more, but I keep telling him I eat when I'm hungry.  If I'm not, I can't force myself to eat because then I just feel sick.

Congrats on completion and WOW - they look fabulous!
Wish I could lose a few pounds....mine just keep finding me....but I can remember a time when I didn't need the gussets either....40 just brought on a whole new round of 'puppy fat' - just not as flattering - and it has been a downhill run from there....

Thank you. I don't know why the weight loss. I feel bad complaining about it but I really cannot afford to loose weight, I'm thin as it is. This happened last year as well, but the loss was far larger, 3" in the waist.

They look really great! I agree, the gussets are always the most annoying part to do.

Nice job! I hope you don't mind if I link to this page; I'm updating my pattern reviews on Jessamyn's Regency Costume Companion (www.songsmyth.com/patternpage.html), adding more recent patterns and links to finished versions of them. I like your work!
