polka dots, crystals and bows!  

Hello!  Just a quick update! I wanted to share a corset that we finished today - one of our over bust polka dot piping detail corsets in a 30" (it's ever so slightly too big for the antique clothing model, but I still think it looks lovely!)

Now, I am prone to random fixation on things or colours or what have you.  The other week I arbitrarily decided that orange was the most amazing colour ever and that I was only going to buy orange fabric.  I consequently now have a rather large amount of orange silk floral brocade in a variety of different designs...

But anyway, I digress.  Today, it was bows.  I finished the this corset and was putting some of these gorgeous dark purple crystals onto the label and thought...this corset could really do with a bow.  I made a matching polka dot pin wheel bow accented with crystals - it attaches to the corset with a little safety pin.  So I suppose whoever gets this corset will be in for a little suprise :)

I always find the smoothness of your work truly inspiring. It makes me want to work harder and do better!

But kudos for the little extra something for the client! Details like that show you love your work, which makes me very happy :-)

aww, that's really kind thank you :)

I just love sewing, really - I suspect I get as much happiness out of making things as people do wearing them!

for some reason that made me think of, 'good kick' ;)

And thank you! I am on a bit of a bow kick at the moment! I still haven't done anything with that orange brocade either...

The corset is gorgeous as always and I hope the customer likes the freebie bow - its lovely! I love ribbons and bows.

If I had money at the moment, which I don't (sadly) I'd have to have a look at the orange fabric you got. I doodled on a piece of paper a while back a design in bright orange and have wanted one like that ever since.

I know what you mean about getting fixed on certain colours and things, I'm the same. My summer wardrobe consists of bright greens, lemon yellows and oranges with even the underwear to match. I got just a teensy bit obsessed...
