On May 11, 2013 my youngest son, Christopher, will marry his sweetheart, Kay and start their lives together as man and wife. Kay has chosen her wedding gown, had all her fittings but there was one thing that needed changed. The lace corset belt was white and she wanted it black to go with their black and white theme. Unable to get one through the bridal shop she attempted to make her own and when she began to pull her hair out I got a phone call. Could I make her a black satin corset belt? Sureeeee I said. No problem I said. I've got a great sewing machine. This will be a breeze. Naive I was LOL. Having never worked with satin before I was in for a surprise. Working with satin can be a bit like fighting a spider web.
