I have been working on a dress for a costume party I'm having for my 18th. The original idea was to go as a vampire bride, but I think this outfit makes me look like a witch.
All I need is a broomstick. haha I wonder if I can hire one from a costume shop. Anyway, onto photos!
My friends and I had a photoshoot in the botanic gardens. It was gorgeous day.
This shows how the corset sits the best. My facial expression is a bit dodgy
so ignore that.
And this shows off the sleeves.
And this shows the richness of the black.
I really had fun making this. That's my second corset ever, I'm really pleased with it. The fabric for the blouse and skirt is a shimmery satin, my first time working with anything slippery. It wasn't too bad, though. Afterwards, when taking off the corset I had lines imprinted all down my torso from the boning, it looked hilarious.
I couldn't believe how much boning I needed for the corset. I used between 5 and 7 metres and had to make two extra trips to the shop to get more.
