Springtime on the Yangtze River

The materials on this corset are all vintage with the exception of the purple trim at the top and the base corset itself. I really like old asian materials and design. There is quite a bit of torn up lace and frayed items with rough edges. It is in antique "piecrust" molded frame with foo foo backing. The back has more frayed ruffles, and old brooch and a black tassle along with more of the faded antique asian fabric.

Red Silk Dress

What a Leggy Babe! She had no clothes when I found her so I made a red silk dress for her out of an old slip. She has SUPER long legs! :)

*Verbal Abuse*

Nine Needles!! That is how many broke off my machine during this creative process. I was so pissed by the end you would never know by looking at this delicate and sweet looking corset. I'm not usually a cusser but sometimes I verbally abuse my sewing machine. I feel much better afterwards. ;) This is a 34 c and is new to etsy. I enjoyed seeking out the treasures for this one. Most of these vintage materials were purchases at Whimsical Whites. See link under my favs!
