Half a meter of some curtain fabric (which was pretty, by the way), 20 steel bones, both spiral and flex ones, 19 pairs of grommets and over 8 meters of lacing, which is too little for my 'broad' shoulders.

I made this for Emilie Autumn gig, and I kinda like this. Making this was pretty fun, though I had to redo things a lot. And it took me three days to complete this, and a few fingers.

The fabric really is gorgeous. I love emilie autumn and can't wait till she tours here. I'd love to be able to sew a corset like this to wear but my skills are lacking in that deparment. Cheesy

This is amazing!  Shocked i wish i had the skills (and patience) to create something like this! Are you going to wear it with a flowing skirt or something? Smiley

@Kyness
The gig really was awesome, and when she gets near you, I command you to go there, skip work, school, whatever else coming on your way because you don't want to miss it! Cheesy

@Serenthia
I actually had a pair of bloomers and bustle-like skirt made of white organza, white lace curtain (lol) and some regular cotton fabric. But a big, flowing skirt would be awesome too :3

@Davinia
I love red and black combo too, so if they had had this same fabric in red/black, too, I would've probably died. It would be so hard to pick which one to make xD

@Eveojin
Thank you muchies ^^

Hehe, I would too if I weren't always late for something and had to run from place to place, and running in corset is kinda hard for me xD
