    Default Handsewn braces

    For Sale:
    Brand new, handsewn 100% cotton ticking, doubled over for strength, with bone buttons. Five lengths acheived by moving to one of 5 button holes. Lengths are 39.5", 38", 36.5", 35", 33.5". Great for the homemade look. I aint no seamstress and they look it, but they work. Tried to get 5-6 stitches per inch. $20 includes the shipping.

    Really nice work, good price and great design, do you ever make any out of material other than ticking? I would take a pair, if you did-ticking was mainly used for beds. Keep up the good work.

    Default other material

    I now have a couple of different colors of ticking that I have made up braces with. I use the ticking material because it is a bit stronger that regular cotton homespun. Guess I figure these braces will have to withstand some more rigorous use than a shirt, maybe I am mistaken. Within the next couple of days, I will post pics of my other materials and all 5 of my designs.
    Regards,

    Sir:
    In answer to your suggestion, here is my first pair with a 100 % Homespun Cotton facing, white ticking on the back. Currently I am only offering this option in the M-1863 version. Pics on my PhotoBucket page but posted here as well. I have three fabrics in my pile at this time and so, will offer those three fabric options to start with. If requests warrant, I will pick up some other fabrics eventually. Thank you to all for your business & interest.

    Default Aother fabric

    Gents
    Here is another fabric color choice. Also, the first Green Plaid pair that I posted has sold, I have enough of that material for one more pair, currently being made. I do not think I will be able to find that particular material again, it was a peice we found at a second hand store and have not seen it in my fabric store. Email or PM if you have interest in that specific fabric shown in 2nd pic this post. Thank you.

    Default Another version & more Homespun

    Gents,
    Another pair ready to ship, made of Blue/Gold ticking material. 41.5", 40", 38.5" & 37" length. Also, I have 3 more varieties of homespun material that I will be making up the M1863's in. If you desire a specific style, PM or email and I will try to accomodate. Currently, I am able to stay current with production but as we get into spring, it will be more difficult.
