HaHA! Now I can annoy everyone on here with pictures of my various corset-projects. Whoopa!

...

Unfortunatley I haven't any pictures of my latest, and you've seen my other three. So, tarnation in a teacup. Buuuuuuuuut I shall babble away in here until I get off my lazy arse and take some.

Tis a most lovely corset. I drafted the pattern all by myself for my ridiculously out-of-proportion measurements and after three failed versions finally did it! Wheeeee. This one shall most definately fit me, not like that disaster of an underbust, or the disaster of that cream corset. OR that disaster of a jade corset which saved itself by overlapping....

Tis of blue chinese silk brocade which I picked up in Hong Kong for something like $15. Which is ridiculous, but astoundingly spiffing. Tis heavily boned, pretty much wrapped in bonding 'cause the panels are so small. I wanted steel boning but I'm too cheap and impatient to order them online and WAIT for them to arrive.

Aaaand trimmed in cream ribbon, which, by muffins, I shall predominantly be handsewing on (I suck at handstiching, so this ought to be fun).


Hmmm.

I'll take pictures to-morrow squirrels.

*curtseys*

Aaaaaah, chinese silk <3 I was considering using black chinese silk as the predominant material for my ball dress, but then I looked at the price, and was like, HOLY CRAP. So it's plain black ... ho-hum ... anxiously awaiting piccytures!

I know. It's ridiculously priced here. Tis why I bought about $70 worth of silk from China Products.

Right-o. Got meeself up and took some really, really bad pictures.

Also, the colour is a bit off in these.

Note the doodling. Those areas are going to be cut, and I seem to have a reasonably squishy waist, if not ribs, so the waist will be yanked in about two inches once I've finished it and laced in and everything.


The fabrics I'm using. Blue brocade silk. It's a little bit less blue - has a hint of purple to it. And the bias is in the same colour as the lacing.


Close-up of my panels. NA-DA! I can too create a pattern from scratch. Contrary to what others may think *coughmothercough*

Wow. Corsets really do do lovely things for one's waist. <3

*want*

So, is this the one you're making for the ball ensemble then?

If you should like. I'll be putting them up on TradeMe, seeing as I'm classy like that Razz

Why, in fact, one is on trademe now. Going for a ridiculous price, hopefully, so's I can pay for boning for a pretty satin one....

I think I have missed it. Can you post the link perhaps next time? I'm not so keen to look through the corset listings if I can avoid it since most are PVC and missing bits...

*resurrects her thread*

Oh my god, Oh my god, Oh my god, Oh my god, Oh my god, Oh my god, Oh my god!!

SQUEEEEE!

I can indeed sew.
(for the record, if I can get another comission or two I'm totally going to be practising on everyone).




My corsety comissiony goodness. Got to the lady just the other day, and I found the pictures floating around livejournal. Steel bones and everything, but next time I might machine stitch one side of the bias, that was a complete bitch to finish....

Oh, and Hannah? Could I get a picture of you in yours? I need advertisments.
Whoopa.

That is an explosion of prettiness. And of course darling, I'm thinking I'll be wearing it to Bry's party, so I'll take piccytures then. <3

Ok I may sound like a total douchebag for saying this but it's entirely out of love:

I think you either need to take the photo from further away or make sure your photos aren't squashed because that doesn't look too flattering Embarassed

Again, that's out of love and respect.





Don't kill me.

That's not me, dear.
It's the client.

Razz

She's ... *ponders ... 15" larger in the waist than I am. And has hips. Which I don't, apparently. -.-

*continues chortling quietly to herself*

Its beautiful work, though, Holly. It looks so professionally done - like something you'd buy in a store.
