I used my plunge pattern, a simple mink coutil, and a lot of lace applique. Here it is on me;
I'm really looking forward to the conference. This is my third one, having attending the first one in 2013, and last year of course. I feel like an old hand now! More photos and blogs to come over the weekend.
I have been so busy working on an underbust commission, a corset for myself for my holiday, and the model corset that I am hoping to use for this year's shoot at the Oxford Conference of Corsetry. I intended to use the silk and leather plunge corset that I made a few months back on the lovely gingerface model however I was unhappy with the silhouette after trying it on her - it just didn't 'cinch' sufficiently. We are roughly the same size but Gingerface does cinch much more than me, so I have got to work on another one - this time a more simple affair but with some embelishment I think (either lace or sequins). Here's the original corset on me;
Not much time to get mark 2 finished as I'm going on holiday next week, so no doubt I'll be sewing at the 11th hour at Oxford....
