Why thank you. Smile
I'm in the process of desperately attempting to get another comission at this very moment.

It depends on what you want - how strong it needs to be, outside fabric, etc etc.

Like, say, if you wanted a reeeeally lightweight one it'd only cost about twenty to twenty five dollars, acos you'd pay $10 for zip ties, and around ten or fifteen for fabric and lacing.

Drill and satin, maybe. They run at about eight dollars per meter each...plus binding...and duct ties, seeing as they're stronger, I'm not sure how much they are....and the eyelets...hmm.

*trails off into happy corset daydreams*

What -are- you looking for, anyways?
Congrats on the corset find, too! I wish I could find such hidden treasures.

um, I want a decent corset that I can actually tighten lol, I'm getting sick of finding cosets that don't really fit properly and don't do anything.

Hmm, maybe we should go shopping sometime?

It wasn't particularly embarrassing, no. I've done worse.

The statement of it being the "best day of your life" kind of got me a bit ... :-S ... worried.

Tja.
You'd be wanting drill then, or canvas. Drill's better though. And some kind of satin or cotton print for the outside...maaaaybe cotton for the lining, if I'm feeling like being OCD and covering up the icky-ness that is internal construction...Oooh and I'll have nice grommets left over from this panel I'm doing for some lady in chicago, so I won't be so panicked about those..

Ooooh interchangeable zip on front panels...I've been wanting to do that for aaaages....

interchangeable zip? so you can change the front panels? cool!


internal construction is awesome, why cover it up?

Corsets become an obsession Alyx, or they do for me anyway. I actually find them rally comfortable, most people don't but they look really hot.

Tja. Plus it means you can adjust the size if you loose weight.
I should do that. I always seem to make one just before I get bonked on the head with a really bad flu...

Anywho, internal construction is all well and good, but I'm OCD with my seams at the moment, and any deviation from a straight line is like a knife being twisted deep in my stomache..

I'm not being dramatic, really! Razz

A vague sort of update.
Holly has a new comission.
Now. Who knows where I can get suiting pinstriped fabric from?
The quest must begin, methinks.

Whelp, I can't upload pictures at the moment, acos I killed my broadband...

Tis a dark grey pinstriped underbust for tightlacing - she's wearing it every day...and HOPEFULLY going to be paying me around $320NZ for it....but that hasn't been decided yet...

And I know you all love these little completely pointless rants I post on here. I should go do some painting...

Ha. You just asked where one could get pinstripe suiting fabric when I was right in the middle of another Dr. Who youku rampage... Hence, I can only think of one possible answer... hehe ... *snipsnip*

Urg.

Words cannot describe how much I detest this corset.
Just no.
ARG!
The pattern is all wrong for me, I tried doing drape-to-pattern, but forgot to check the final, so whilst it fits in most areas (not the ribs!), it is yet ANOTHER corset that doesn't give me a waist. Goodness me.

The corset itself is fairly decent. So I'm selling it on trademe, if anyone is interested. Auction is here, ending on friday, I believe.

Oh yes, and Tammy? At some stage I need to thief your damnably proportionate measurements for a pattern. Holly is broke, and bloody IRD hasn't sent her her number yet, so she hasn't been PAID and is down to her last fourty or fifty dollars. So Holly needs to make corsets to sell. Yes she does.


Oh, and it's all wrinkly in the first picture because it's laced on a pillow that I forgot to pad out properly. It's less fat sideways than that.
