Krispy Kreme Korset

Just what I didn't know I needed: an Alabama Chanin-style donut-themed corset.

Well, I have one now. Found the Krispy Kreme shirt at the thrift store, and backed it with a plain red tee.

Hand-stitched, except for the shoulder seams. Seams unfinished and left on the outside. Pattern found in Alabama Stitch, Natalie Chanin's first book.

that just really cracks me up! And the colors are so perfect for the season. Wow. I would love to see a photo of it in use - how do you style it?

I really must try sewing with knits. You make it look so easy.

Found your blog and *love* it - nice photography too!

I really like handwork and have been tempted to try the Alabama Studio stuff but have put it off due to too many WIPs. I'm amazed at how much you get done! And I like that you don't stick to one "genre" -- truly eclectic.

Will it be part of your running outfit? Proof that doughnut eaters can still be fit

I have been following your blog for a couple of years and I am intrigued by your dress form. Is it a do-it-yourself project or can I buy one somewhere?
