Status: In Progress

Condition: Not Set

5th October 2014: Corset progress I decided that I preferred suede cord to waxy cord as I like the contrast - it gives a better overall effect.

The leather 'corset' will go over the boned corset - I was initially going to glue the panels on to the regular corset, but I don't want to ruin the proper one so will be looking at how to go about it - possibly using hooks of some sort to hook over the under corset to keep it all in place.

The leather I am using is from an old coat I had lying about - I used the lining of the coat to line the front of the dress, so there is a fair bit of recycling going on here!

30th September 2014: Pattern The paint came out a little shinier than hoped but it still works!

I have also started embroidering spirals onto this pattern. Will do the same for the other sleeve and the main dress and hood.

30th September 2014: Dress progress Slightly modified a dress pattern and lined the top (will be adding an underskirt later).
Will be adding the hood separately.

Corset is just for the base.
