Ok, so this is my first post - fingers crossed that the pictures load- if not tell me and I'll try and fix it Smiley

So I've wanted a lace up corset type top for AGES and I saw a dress in town that had a laceup thingy similar to this so I decided to give it a go (keep in mind that before this top I'd never sewn before - this was all hand sewn :S).

The photo's don't really do justice to the top - the pink is a really really bright silk material. And my crappy phone camera sucks.

As modelled by my mum's bed..


And my pasty back (It's not my fault!it's winter!)- the material is'nt usually this lumpy either, I was standing funny


And my hoody (which the photo's don't really flatter either)


the cute material


and my crappy sewing haha


Hope you guys like them Smiley Feedback appreciated. If you want a tute for the corsety top I'd be happy to Smiley it was really easy.

And do you guys reckon the corset top would look alright with a patterned material? Something funky like pirates or dinosaurs? Just cos the silk seems too .. "night time" and fancy for me.

EDIT: So I've added a tute for the corsetty type top (like a year after making the top). I hope it's understandable - if not, just ask.
