Hello! It has been far too long since I've posted, but I have been very busy up until last week. More on that in my next post.
Another Unfinished Thing has been removed from the pile!
I based my pattern on this pair from The Met, but it didn't turn out quite the same. I definitely made a few foolish mistakes, including somehow putting the straps on the wrong sides, so they point more inwards instead of outwards.

|I stuck that godet in too low. Or perhaps didn't cut the tabs high enough.|
Sadly, they stays are a bit too big for her, and the foam is so firm it didn't compress well at all.
