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.)


  1. Hieno juhlamekko!!!! Sä osaat oikeesti ommella! <3

  2. The dress is beautiful no matter what color it is! You do nice work.

  3. I´m FILLED with yesness!
    Love the corset and what fun would it be to make one for a top, for summer?!? And you know I´m this crow is all thumbs up for embellishments of this world!

    The dress speaks " etheral " in all ways appropriate. Love it!
    And muchly thank you. I appreciate this post!
