What i learned today

In the School of Life today i learned how to correctly dress a bride and lace her into a corset back dress. I would have thought you laced from the bottom loops up to the top ones, ending in a bow because that is how you do it on yourself, but that is not the case; you lace from the top down and then tuck the ribbon ends into the dress. Also, be sure to lace the wide ribbon into the back on the top loop, but then up from the back on all of the other loops. Who knew you needed lessons on these things? But now i know. Which means now you know, too.

And knowing is half the battle.

I don't know much about decorative corset backs, but I know the proper way to lace the death trap of a real corset. Sounds like it may be a bit different.
