A selection from 2009...  
Here are a few of my favorite corsets from 2009!

A custom order for a wicked cool client. Heavy duty busk, stripe suiting fabric with grey bone casings and binding, double back fan-lacing.

Another neato custom order. The base fashion fabric was taken from the client's favorite shirt [which was giving out at the seams], with iridescent pink/blue dupioni for the bone casings and binding. I used part of the original pocket to make a little interior pocket. Also with purple grommets, and a pink/blue iridescent silk ribbon.

A corset that has been rolling around in my head for well over a year before I got the chance to make it. Super soft ivory and blue lace on top of ivory silk dupioni. Antique gold grommets in front and back.

Purple silk dupioni that I originally made for myself, but it doesn't match my blue hair, haha. This year I fell in love with heavy duty busks. I want to use them all the time.

I just loved this pinstripe, and thought it could use some lapels.

Now I seem to be having technical issues, so part 2 will come along later. There might even be men's tailoring!

Stunning work!

I also adore the first one. The combination of double fan lacing and pinstripe is amazing. I am severely coveting it. : )

I would eat my own elbows for a corset like the first one.

But thank you!

The second one reminds me of sorbet. :)

mmmm sorbet. It reminded me of Easter when I was working on it.

Stunning work. YOu do excellent fan lacing and O live how you turned that old shirt into a beautiful corset. I would like more opportunities to upcycle. Lovely as always!
Cicatrix Design: [.ink.]cicatrixdesign on March 7th, 2010 09:05 pm (UTC)
Thank you! =] That means a lot to me, as your work is so fantastic.
Always interesting when clients bring in stuff like that. Wish I could have matched the plaids more, but there wasn't a way to with so little fabric.

Thank you so much! :) Yes, you were quite limited by the amount of fabric you had to work with and I think you ddid a lovely job.
