This was one of my first cyber-esque projects and it took a week of obsessing sewing to complete on time to attend a gothic ball. Vinyl has become my new obstacle, its quite the stubborn fabric to work with!!

I wish I had the body for that!  You look great!

I love my hubby, but the Army doesn't pay enough for my crafty habit!

Thanks! It took a year of dedicated yoga and belly dance practice to lose the 30 lbs it took to look like that now!

Honey you look hot!  Grin

The costume is excellent and I love it - especially the straight jacket top.

Congrats on losing the weight.  I'm going through the same process myself at the moment - I've lost 14lbs but have a wee while to go before I will be he weight I want to be.

I have a Yoga dvd - never used it I'm ashamed to say.  Maybe I should dig it out.

I'm so proud of you.  Well done!

With blessings.

The costume is very sexy and looks as if it were professionally made. Awesome work.
I plan to make something fetish for my boyfriend so he can come to fetish parties with me...just need the materials. Hope I can do as good a job as you have!

Wow, that's unbelievably hot.  Shocked
And the costume's not bad either, haha.

Seriously, wonderful work. You must have the patience of a saint.

Without you, dear muse,
I cannot.
I will not.

I am not.

Smoking hot outfit.   Yeah, I couldn't pull that off.  Even if I could still contort myself into a pretzel.

Vinyl sounds like it would be hard to work with.  I don't think it would run smoothly through my machine, not without covering the top and bottom with tissue paper to ease it along.  I was planning on sewing with some vinyl for a swap I am doing. 

How did you machine sew the vinyl without constantly getting it stuck?  I am new to machine sewing so maybe I am missing something obvious.
