XO Awesome! Looks like a nifty craft. I thought the pink leopard print was wild enough, then the sushi was pretty out there... but when i saw the monster boobies i was like XO!!!!!! WTF craziness! My boyfriend saw these and said it reminded him of a music video where there's a girl stripping but in place of her nipples there's a pair of mouths singing the lyrics... i dunno, i haven't seen it but it sounds pretty trippy. Even if i have the boobs for it, i sure don't have the guts to wear 'em, lol. Way to go!

This may not help the pattern-seekers, but bravissimo.com has a good selection of swimsuits with excellent coverage and support for big boobs. It's a bit pricey, but worth the money IMO.

I love that leather look! Looks almost like snakeskin. Kimono are so much fun to make and wear! This inspires me... something about that jolly roger belt hit me. Maybe a cheongsam out of skull fabric? Er... maybe not. lol

Good job, anyways. I'm scared to death of working with any leather-type material cause i'm afraid of causing permanent holes!

Beautiful skirt! I'd love to see how you made the side pockets.

Well, it looks like walmart is really shooting itself in the foot. Perhaps now there is some hope of a mom-and-pop fabric store opening up to fill the gap even in "middle-of-nowhere" towns.

Beautiful! I love the one with the zany purple squares! The off-the-shoulder armwarmer-looking thing (4th picture down i think) also looks pretty neat.

Looks great! I noticed it could use stronger boning in the front next to the laces, but then i read that the boning was made of CARDBOARD, so... not bad, for cardboard! lol. The rest of it looks very well-supported, it should look great with the good fabric and boning. Way to go!

What i don't understand is that there are so many who still shop there, knowing how they exploit their employees and contribute to poverty. I agree with lieslree. Maybe there was a choice of various stores and small businesses at some point in rural areas, but the reason there is only walmart in some areas is because walmart squashed them all. Online ordering is cheap enough these days that if there were no fabric stores in my area, that's what i'd do.

Thanks for the reply! (I would've responded sooner, but holidays being what they are... ^^;)

Unfortunately, i couldn't find any medical suppliers in my area. I have one now with plastic "whalebone" boning and it seems fairly sturdy, but i'd still like to try out steel anyway.

The laughing moon site did say to take in the waist at the seams for a smaller waisted corset. So if i lace down to say, 28 inches, then want to go smaller, i'd have to take it apart and adjust the seams again, or make a new corset? I understand tightlacing is a very gradual thing, so until i got down to the 28 inches it would be loose in the bust and hip, no? Is that how it's supposed to be? I just want to make sure, since i've never worn a professionally-made one.

I have read about "waist stays", a ribbon that goes around the inside of the corset, but never into detail about exactly how they're attached. I'll have to try it next time i make one, as i can feel the tension in the one i'm wearing now! I think i'll go with the laughing moon pattern for now.

Thanks again!

Does anyone know which commercial patterns are safe for tightlacing? I've been looking to make one from a professional pattern, and it would be a nice bonus to learn how to make one i could eventually use for waist training. I've been looking at the laughing moon dore/silverado pattern as a good start for learning more about construction, but the faq on their site didn't seem very encouraging about shrinking the waist. It seems that if i want to shrink the waist with that pattern, i'd have to shrink my bust and hips as well, so every time i wanted to take my waist a size down i'd have to adjust the whole garment! So, i was wondering what patterns i could try after that that would be more conducive to it. Any suggestions are highly appreciated!
