I found a classic 80s skirt suit, it had the lot, leg of mutton sleeves, bows, bustles, you name it, but it was made of a great brocade. I took it home, dug out a Burda corset pattern I had...
Altered the pattern, because it didn't fit very well; then finally when nothing remained of the original suit or the original pattern, I sewed this all up, beat and bullied the rivets in and now I have myself a nice gothy corset... Roll Eyes
Full torso shot:

and detail of the fabric:

i love it. very well made. I've always wanted to make one myself but I need to work on my sewing skills before I get to this level.

Looks really nice and it fits you well. That's a great fabric.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.
