Hey!

I've just completed this victorian corset for my class and I'm kindof excited cause it was giving me grief. The metal spirals that we used for boning were too long and I had to get my boyfriends father to trim them for me urrrg. Anyway, here is a few piccies of it, along with some photos of an Edwardian Petticoat we did earlier in the year. That drove me nuts with almost 50 metres in total of pintucks and 21 metres of cording in the hem.
I have to go buy another length of lacing for the corset cause this one is too short.










In the class we are taking now, we also create a bustle and we use this and our corset in third year (I'm first year) to build our bustle outfits over. Here is some pictures of the most AMAZING bustle I got to parade for a third year at our annual show.
Please note, the garment isn't mine, I just got to wear it. Another student made the entire thing, including the hat.
Another note, these pictures do belong to me, so I promise I'm not breaking any copyright rules!

I'm speechless, this is so amazing.  Your petticoat looks so professional and flawless.  And your friends Edwardian dress is so wonderful.  I wish I had your skills. Just awesome.  Grin Grin Grin.  Did you go to the mall dressed like that?  I think the pic with all the people staring is funny.

Ahaha, nah, although, a lot of my class mates have expressed a desire to go to the pub in some of the other costumes we have made this year. The photo with the people staring was taken at a careers day parade.

 Those are beautiful! That Corset looks fantastic and I wisted the Petticoat.  (everyone can dream) You should be so proud, and excited!  I would jump up and down if my friend made something like that & I got to wear it. So what class is this called? "Edwardian things Dene (me) wants"?

again. Beautiful.

Wow - this is all beautiful - the corset is wonderfully shaped, and he detailing on the petticoat is amazing.  You look great in the other outfit too.

What are you studying?

Your work in progress is gorgeous and will be worth the finish.  And the Edwardian dress is beautiful - as is the hat.  I'm assuming it took many hours of hard and patient work to put that together.
