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)

I don't post here very regularly but now I have to... clicking the This Rocks button isn't even enough here. What you did is AMAZING. It much better than the also great looking original and I love all these colours!!! I wish I could do that, too but you almost don't get any cans here(in germany) anymore so having enough different sorts of cans together would take months :/ But I guess when I come to france next time (once to twice a month), I'll try to get as many different cans as I can to do something that just came to my mind while seeing your gorgeous mirror!!! than's so much for inspiring me  Grin

I'm back now and hope to return to barcelona as quickly as possible... it was like paradise on earth... My head is full of inspirations and my bags were more than full of all kinds of fabrics, zips, buttons, yarn etc. This stuff is ridiculously cheap there (at least compared to france, switzerland and germany) and the variety is immense. I worried way too much about the language. I got everything I wanted without a problem and got used to speaking my weird mixture of catalan, spanish, english and a little french very quickly lol.
Yet another city I fell in love with... I was soooo sad yesterday when we were leaving.
Barcelona is even more stylish than Paris. And this means a lot since my love to Paris is almost endless lol

I'll just try to have a nice time there  Smiley

hmm I'm not sure if I'll get an answer in time, since I'm leaving for Barcelona next monday, but do you think that knowing almost no Catalan at all could be a problem in any fabric stores or something? I don't really speak spanish either(only french, english, german, swedish and italian)... may be a stupid question but it bugs me Undecided
so if anyone would answer I'd be really thankful Smiley
