So my husband had never been to renn fair. And then some of his girl friends from work invited him and he realized that he would be a fool to turn down going to fair with a couple of hot chicks. So of course I had to make a new costume. This corset sewed up fairly easy in about a day. I wish I had used more boning but I thought I bought more than I did. To fix some of this problem the from panel is made out of the plastic from one of those accordion filing books. It worked quite well and kept it perfectly flat. On to the pictures!


It has a purple ruffle around the top to keep it a little interesting. I like to hand sew different things on every year to re use it but switch things up.


wow am I excited in this one!





Awwww, this is the pirate costume that made me give him the time of day when we first met  Roll Eyes

I will make another one I'm sure, maybe an over bust. This was just a pattern I banged out on paper, thank god my fashion schooling didn't go to waste I guess Cheesy

Boldly going where others have probably been.

Pretty! I love it! I miss going to the Ren Fair we used to go every year to the one in Cali and now we live in TN and the Ren Fair in Nashville just wasn't as good as the one back home so we just don't go anymore.

Is it the ren fair the one in Irwindale?

Thanks for all the sweet comments guys!  No the skirt I didn't make, but I did have to re vamp. My ever helpful husband did the laundry and threw in my %100 silk patchwork skirt. Needless to say it did not fare to well. But I just tied the front up with a few ribbons and it was good enough for fair at least.

I have to agree with you there. I wish we could get back home to go to it.
