And just an excuse to show off my awesome outfit xD

Front:

Excuse the fuzzyness.

Back:


I wore this at Summer Darkness ("underground lifestyle event") last week. I just loved parading around in it xD
It was kinda inspired by Emilie Autumn. Bloomers are soooo comfortable ^^ I drafted a pattern myself; it needs to be modified a bit, but last week I didn't have time to make another pair. Made with black silk, black elastic, pink elastic lace, some more pink lace and scraps from the corset (for the heart).

I made the corset last year for a ball gown. Used the pattern Truly Victorian 110 (1886). I highly recommend it Smiley It's easy to follow and the actual corset is really flattering. Especially if your a bit flat in the chest area *cough*
I made it with four  layers instead of two; two layers of very sturdy lining, one layer of pink and one layer of black spiderweb. For the boning I used the spiral steel ones (7 mm). They are the absolute best. So that lovely corset can effortlessly take in four or five inches. I love corsets Tongue

Thanks for looking!

Oh my! Those bloomers are simply epic. I love the heart detail on the back. And the corset - WOW! Absolutely beautiful.

Lovin' the bloomers, girlfriend!!  Super job.....I've bookmarked this to show my daughter tonight (I can picture her jumping up and squealing excitedly already), as she is very into corsets.  Perfect for my sixteen (almost seventeen) year old - she's going to want to make her own version (I hope you don't mind).....Thanks for sharing!

Gorgeous corset and thanks for posting the name and number of it.  Methinks I'll have to use it for an upcoming SteamPunk event... Smiley
