Getting real disgusted with this trend of people thrifting perfectly nice pieces other people might truly need & would get longtime use from just to alter it into some ugly impractical fast fashion piece they’ll inevitably end up tossing in a few months.
I was playing around with fabric and pattern drafting today to take my mind off of the pre exam stress and I might have just made something really awesome! I'm super excited to show you guys once it's finished :3
It’s been done for a while, only I’ve been 1) too ill to move and/or 2) reminding myself that this site doesn’t show anyone updates anyway so..
Above was the inspiration board, especially the top one. I had a crisis over the stomacher. Too many ideas and not enough time! Well, that’s not entirely true. I had time but couldn’t decide so I went with simple to show off the brooch I bought from Sign of the Gray Horse.
Not sure when I will have a chance to take pictures wearing it. There is a rose garden sort of nearby and I’d like to go there.

I just wanted to attempt a XVIII century inspired corset/stays (nothing really historical accurate). I like the style but there's a lot to improve here. And it'd look better with a chemise (and with boobs).
