I haven't posted on here in ages (actually I have barely posted here at all), but I really wanted to show off this baby. Unfortunately, it has a quite sad story attached to it. I made it for a pretty special girl, who was totally excited to get it (she wanted to wear it at a concert of her band). I had to send it per post as she lives a few hundred kilometers away from here. The last thing I heard from her was that she loved it, but that she hadn't tried it on yet. That was 3 1/2 weeks ago. Since then, nothing. I feel pretty sorry for making and sending it to her now, as i definitely still have a crush on her.
ANYWAY, it was my first try on a corset (i don't even know if it's actually a corset or more of a corsage
) and took me 3 nights to draw a draft, cut and sew. Didn't use any kind of pattern or tutorial or the like, so of course it's NOT PERFECT. It consists of two layers of black denim and a pretty ugly but very soft green lining. Oh and the lacing in the front was not supposed to stay like this, i just didn't have anything else there when i took those photos.
So here it is:
(the white spot or whatever on the left must have been a reflection of the sunlight.. it definitely wasn't there)
the back. My dressform's physique isn't quite realistic enough to show it off well, but those pictures are the only one on a person i have
my sister tried it on directly before i sent it off though and it looked awesome on her (so i really don't know why that girl won't answer anymore)
