Autumn Corset

I used the material I made in the tutorial how to use “Water soluble material” to make an Autumn Corset.

I decided to use the embroidered material for the bust section, and the main fabric for the corset is a lovely rusty coloured taffeta edged in a plain brown cotton. The corset has boning to give it more shape, encased in orange ribbon.

Just the eyelets to put in now!

It was great to get the chance to share my thoughts on my craft along with ideas of where I’d like to take my shop in the future. Hope you enjoy reading it.

Purple Batik Costume – Week 5

Purple Batik BraThis week I made the bra and arm cuffs. The bra was a little difficult as it was necessary to stitch pieces of patterned fabric together to look as if it was one continuous piece. The trim over the section where the neckties are attached also had to have a piece of fabric appliquéd over the top so that it gave a nice finish to the edge.

The back of the bra was finished with some elastic encased in lycra with a bra hook and eye closure for a secure closing. The neck ties were also made in a lycra so there is a little give around the neck for comfort.

 

Zia Bastion Costume Part 2

last weekend was the Sapphire Summer Charity hafla in Llanfairfechan, North Wales. It was a great event with lots of talented dancers and a wonderful atmosphere. I danced in my new costume which was a dance version of Zia from Bastion.

The costume was slightly different to make than most of my others as it didn’t have very much embellishments. This made the fabrics and colours used even more important as I wasn’t going to be layering other items on top.

For the Summer Sapphire Bellydance Charity show coming up in the new few weeks I have decided on my song and in the process of working out a choreography. This is my new costume which will go with it.

The track is an mix of Build that Wall and Terminal March from the soundtrack of Bastion by Darren Korb. To go with this I’ve chosen to make a belly dance costume based on the character of Zia.
