I have this weird thing..

About having to sew myself something new to wear whenever I go out to party. Which happens about twice a year. I think I need to go out more, just think how much clothes I'd have if I'd go out, say, once a month. But, alas, I doubt the husband would let me go out that often. :/ I have lots of improvements to make to the next version, but I'm pretty happy with this version too. FYI, lace is a PITA to sew. (I know, I know, the pictures suck once again, trying to take your own picture isn't all that easy. XD The first pic shows the color correctly, the second one is just to show the length.)

Upon request

No, I'm not officially coming back from my blog break, but some (well, one) of you (and you know who you are) asked me to blog about the corset and dress I've sewn in school. I made a corset for myself, and a dress for a customer. The corset is just a plain black denim, that was about the cheapest fabric I found when shopping for the corset.. But since I had no idea how this would turn out (it's heavily modified), I figured that I don't want to invest a whole lot of money in it. And without further ado, here it is
I'm thinking of adding some kind of embellishment to it, so that I know which end should be up and which one down. :D I just haven't figured out what I want to decorate it with. Maybe a flower or sequins or something..

The dress is made of taffeta, organza and tulle. You can't really see the tulle in the pictures, but it's there. :) Making the folds wasn't the easiest thing ever, but I think it turned out pretty nice for a first try. :) (Oh, btw, the color is way off in these pictures, the photo studio at school just didn't want to co-operate with me today. The dress is really much lighter irl.)
