Corsets in the press!

Hi Folks!

I am sorry it's been so long.  The e-book was published and then everything went WOOOOOOSH!! The Oxford Mail got in touch because they'd seen a BBC article about corsetry on a 'no news day', then once that was published, the actual BBC got in touch and came to record a few sessions with me for BBC Radio Oxford.  Those have already been broadcast on a breakfast show last week, but .... drumroll ... the TV people now want in on the corset action, so they're coming with a film crew next week!  Click the pic to read the Oxford Mail article:

All this means is that it's been insanely busy at Sew Curvy towers.  My sales have gone through the roof - i've already sold 70 copies of the e-book, and ofcourse the knock on sales have added to that mountain of tissue paper, ribbons and postal receipts! ... Gertie of Better Sewing fame also decided to make a corset - have you seen it?  She is going to look AMAZING when it's all done - keep an eye out on her blog for more news on that.

Ofcourse I had to make a corset as if for a fitting for Lou the lovely BBC radio presenter so that we could capture the "ooooh!" factor when she was laced in, for the listeners.  Now I'm making her another for the TV slot - one that I think will 'suit' her more.  More on that in the next post or so.  In the meantime, here she is with her corset ready for final fitting:

And I've been trying to make a little bridal portfolio to take to local wedding fairs this autumn.  I've finished a couple of pieces but the work is on going on that front.  There are all sorts of other possibilities and projects in the pie too, so what I really need to do is figure out a way of either extending the number of hours in the day - or the number of minutes in an hour, or how to clone myself at least 4 times.
