I've also lengthened the shirt just a smidge. I've had moderate success messing with patterns in the past, but lately I feel like I've lost my design mojo (hence the hiding from the corset), so we'll just see how this all works out.

I've also made progress unpacking my bedroom. See

Yup. I have sometimes taken blog pictures in the nude, but no one will EVER know! :)

Look at you, you're on fire! I like the simple corset sleeve, too. The whole thing looks fantastic.
I'm glad your move went well, although it's a real shame Boyd disappeard ::snicker::
