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  Roll Eyes ) 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  Undecided my sister tried it on directly before i sent it off though and it looked awesome on her  Smiley (so i really don't know why that girl won't answer anymore)

Heard about the guy who fell off a skyscraper? On his way down past each floor, he kept saying to reassure himself: So far so good... so far so good... so far so good. How you fall doesn't matter. It's how you land!

i wish she did. but well, wishes are one thing, reality is another. and this reality doesn't look too good.

Your corset turned out well, it looks like you put a lot of thought and effort into making it. I'm sorry the person you sent it to didn't seem to appreciate it *hugs*. It was a very sweet gesture and there are certainly people out there who will value kind acts like that.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.
