Ok, I really shouldn't be posting this because I made it for a fashion show that's happening next month, and the whole point of the fashion show is to reveal new pieces.. but, I'm super proud of how it came out, and.. well, I figure none of you guys are going to be at the show anyway Smiley

Since we work with leather (mainly bags and accessories) this was a new thing for me. We're partnered up with a swimwear line called "Jolly Roger" so we agreed to go with a pirate theme. I have two girls walking the runway, and this is the final outfit, for my 'pirate queen' as it were..

Anyway - here you go!



The feathers are detachable, with a snap on either side. For, you know, when she's going to battle or something.




Before you say anything, the corset is deliberately asymmetrical. So the point under the bust is meant to not be centered. Though I don't think people will realize that and they'll probably just think I can't measure - lol.

The belt is actuall attached to the corset, starts at the front and works its way all the way around.

And finally, the back

So.. what do you think!?

Holy crapballs. That is amazing, your construction is flawless (and it's completely obvious that it's meant to be asymmetric). The leather is beautiful too. Please please please can we have a picture update after the show so we can see it in action?

That's awesome!  My husband loves assymetry, so I find myself noticing it more often.  Super fantastic!

Absolutely gorgeous! you did a great job! although i know you said the asymmetrical point at the top of the corset is intentional, I worry that it might poke the wearer in the boob?! is it soft?

So the fashion show was a GONG SHOW.

It was really disorganized, and the models had no time to change - which means my model was barely dressed when she walked out wearing this. Unfortunately, the photographers didn't take the most awesome photos either Sad

I blogged about it, and there's photos there: http://divina-denuevo.com/runway-show-re-cap-the-ice-ball/
(Mods, I'm not sure if that's not allowed - if it isn't let me know and I'll upload the photos here, i wasjust trying to save time).
