Re: [TheCostumersManifesto] Newbie
- Hi Pat ! I'm sure some of the pro's here can help you better than I but I've
had quite a bit of experience w/rigilene as I use it to make my own show
corsets. I've found that the best way to keep it in place other than lots of
large pins( which makes the stitching process much longer )is to use a
dissovable adhesive ( like kids gluestick ) to fasten the stay in place then
tack the lining over it and stitch the whole thing at once. Mine all get
cleaned befroe wearing so the glue comes out w/the first cleaning and the
non-staining ones I use really are non-staining. I use one needle size
larger than standard for my machine as the thread is a little heavier
weight. hope this helps some/Randy

- An even easier way would be to do it the way they would
have done it back then. I am part of a French and
Indian/Revolutionary war reenacting group. The men in our
group held up their gaitors/leggings with garters. Some
used leather ones, which look like little belts that fasten
around the leg. Other men used the wool garters we wove.
You simply fasten the leather ones or tie the woven ones
just under the knee where the calf curves in.
Hope thi helps!
