Cleavage Next Time
I'm trying to show how its really important that a corset fit you properly. I put this one up on Etsy because I love it, but it doesnt fit me. I weighed more when I made it and I never really did fit it to myself properly. I needed a rush job corset. And thats what I got. Although I enjoyed making it - every step of the way - I'm supposed to have cleavage. At least some. The back isnt supposed to meet like this.
Someday, someone will love this. This person will buy it and he/she will be transformed. Until then, I'll have it on my mannequin and stare at it lovingly. And when I do find time to make myself another one, I'll do it right.
Sometimes the iphone camera does a good job. It makes me all fuzzy and I like that. But I really need to go get a camera.

I will often tackle jobs with my well honed stitch witchery skills that others fear to take on. I love taking a garment that needs repair and breathing new life into it again. My brides are usually the off beat types of all ages and persuasions who want something different to wear on their special day - something not possible to purchase off the rack. Ive made things for rock stars, for the hard to fit, for the girl next door, for the tribal belly dance kings and queens!
I take inspiration from the days of olde and the world's diverse cultures.
And when I'm not making awesome things, I'm trying to help save the world by getting in touch with the land and changing my old ways of doing things..........
