11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Black and white striped corset (image heavy) on: March 06, 2006 08:47:01 PM
That is the most fabulous thing I've seen all day!  Love love love it. 

Excellent!  I believe that my SO is getting in the truck right now to finally buy me my own sewing machine so I can make this... 

It'll probably take me a few tries before I get it right, but I doubt he'll mind that I have to model different corsets for him.  And he had an excellent time measuring me for the pattern....   Wink

Do you think this pattern will hold up for a larger busted woman?

Are you doing any Soul Collage work?  One collage activity that has always fascinated me, but I haven't done yet, is creating your own tarot/goddess deck using matte board or manilla file folder paper.  I love the idea because of the symbolism involved. 

My current project is a goddess/"women in their power" theme collage on a mache dressmaker's mannequin.  That's pretty vivid for body image issues.

As I'm reading magazines, I rip out pages that catch my eye.  I'm really into bright colors and cool textures, and catchy (and usually ironic) phrases from advertisements.  All of those go into an expanding file folder with built-in dividers - full pages as is, smaller images trimmed and stuck into envolopes.  I try to keep it organized by theme and/or color so it's easy to find stuff.  Then I can toss the magazines, or, if they're not too mangled, donate them to a local non-profit that uses them with their clients for art projects.  I used to have boxes and boxes of magazines, but those darn things are heavy to move and take up a lot of space.  This method means that I can use all that space for all my other craft and art supplies...  Heh heh.

I haven't learned to knit - it's on my list of skills to learn - but am interested in joining a snb if someone can teach me the basics.  Thanks!
