so i'm drawn to all the cute little laced-up tops peppering these boards, but i can't seem to separate 'corset' from 'oppression of women' in my mind. one of racehorse87's lovely costumes (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=58628.0) made me realize that what i wanted was a bodice.
i just used mcalls 4107, because it was 99 cents the day i went to joann fabrics. ms. mcall has this idea i should wear a 12, but i made a 6 and it's still too big. maybe i can bulk up a little by the time it's warm enough to actually wear it.
there was supposed to be lacing on the back, too, but i left it out, translated one of my boyfriend's tattoos into felt applique, and slapped that back there instead. i haven't really worked with felt since grade school...i hope i didn't make it too delicate.
less talk, more pictures.
this is my first completed project really inspired by craftster. so thanks, craftster!
