Panniers

These were finished for soooooo long ago, but silly me had forgotten them and I found them under a pile of fabric. But here they are!

Sewn in what I think is a linen fabric, but it could be cotton to, but it feels more like linen. The pattern is from Corsets and Crinolines by Norah Waugh It went together really easy and for the boning channels I have a simple cotton ribbon.

All the raw edges are folded in and sewn together by hand.

All the visible seams except for the boning channels are sewn by hand with flax waxed with beeswax.

  1. Not to sound like a complete idiot… but what exactly are they?…. Are they the big poofy things you’d wear under a dress to make it look all posh and kinda two-dimensional?
