Having launched the printable patterns now its so nice to start seeing your finished garments. Theres nothing more thrilling then getting photos of your creative interpretations of my patterns. This week I was sent some beautiful photos by Samantha of two bustles she has made from the Pandora Bustle pattern.
Here is a picture but you can see better ones in the corset photo gallery. Lovely!
I’ve just finished making up the padded part of my bustle for my next ‘printable pattern.’ I’m rather pleased with myself it’s going very well.
I’ve decided to go with eyelets instead of ties so when you wear it with a corset you can use the corset laces to tie it on at the waist. It also means different colour laces can be used to blend with the outfit your wearing.
Had lots of fun making this – took lots of pics too so I can write illustrated instructions to follow. Gonna get cracking with the outer ruffle!
As promised here is the first of my corsetry video quick-guides. Designed to introduce you to corsetry if your a beginner, these videos will familiarise you with basic tools and materials. Check out my first video on the different types of corsetry boning below! Its the longest of the videos but there are lots of boning types to go through. As well as comparing the properties of spiral and sprung steel I show you exactly how to cut your own and seal the ends, and also cover lacing bones and busks.
