I think camo would be the perfect choice. Camo with lace. Romantic camo.
Then again. Camo is my almost always answer Smiley
My daughters don't seem to mind though (13 and 17).

anyone know of any australian suppliers for corset stuff? just cos i dont wanna wait aaagges to get stuff from OS.
i went to lincraft and asked about busks and the girl just looked a me funny
gah! useless!

can you guys suggest a corset patter for a bigger busted girl? (my proportions are wacky, im a 10D)
i tried on an edwardian corset at gallery serpentine, and had a bit of a janet jackson moment so tried on their femme fatale which worked out soo much better!


I know these guys in Sydney sell metal boning:
Metropolitan Garments P/L
ph 02 -9313 6611
17-19 Dunning Ave, Rosebery

I have 2 Femme Fatales from GS, I know what you mean about being better for bigger busted girls. I look at them as an investment  Grin. Im actually thinking about just tracing the pieces off and making my own corset pattern (hush hush hehe).. i want a leather one...

The only thing about that Simplicity pattern is that it can compress the bust, not lift it. The pieces kind of go in at the top... you'll need to adjust it a little bit.

Good luck!

What are some cute, edgy combos that would be fairly inexpensive? She's a bit emo, a bit punk, a bit goth, a bit prep...I was thinking maybe even something Amy Lee-inspired? I dunno anymore whats "cool"

Can't go wrong with a basic black corset, but depending on her style, you can add lace trim, velvet ribbon at the top and bottom edges and over the boning, bondage straps...
Or jacquard is good. Not so much the printed kind (a bit bold for my taste), but the embossed kind, where the pattern is the same colour as the fabric.

I am planning on being 'partied out snow white' for halloween next year (think yellow pumps, yellow knee length poofyish skirt, dark eye makeup, & BRIGHT RED lipstick) and i really want to make my whole costume this year, so i can wear it to school on the 31st. yea yea.... i know WTF does this have to do with corsets?

well i really want to use a corset for the top, but i don't know how i should do it.... i want a shiny material, cinched at the center, and blue semi-poofy sleeves. what styles should i use. i don't want to seem too slutty.  Wink

Make yourself a victorian corset with straps...then a chemise for underneath...if you make it a longer corset, you won't have to worry about the chemise being full length...you could even make yourself just a collared crop top with pouf sleeves....

Failing that, a simpler idea would be to make a waist-cincher and wearing a pouf sleeved blouse/shirt under it...

Or, make a bodice like this one:

and add some puffy sleeves to it. This way might be easier because it's only boned at the front, versus all the way around, so you don't have to wrestle against the boning to get the sleeves on there.

I do have a question, though, especially for some of the young teen craftsters (at 24 I'm sadly out-of-touch):
What are some cute, edgy combos that would be fairly inexpensive? She's a bit emo, a bit punk, a bit goth, a bit prep...I was thinking maybe even something Amy Lee-inspired? I dunno anymore whats "cool"

How about something like red or white(or hot pink) as a base colour with black edging and boning channels

I'm not sure of the costs - it is more than plastic boning and they sell it precut in lengths. If you know what size lengths you need, just call them and they will tell you over the phone (havent bought any for a long time - been using double/triple layers of plastic boning).
