So.. I said I would post my sketches but my sketching skills suck so instead I’ll post some of my inspiration
So I’m actually making this corset right now. I drafted the pattern yesterday and today and now I’m putting together the ‘good copy’ out of white cotton twill. My version’s cording with be a little more simplistic than the one used here but mine will have a busk(http://www.koshka-the-cat.com/runder/busk.jpg), two gores on the bust line, but straps that will tie in the front right about where the straps of this one connect. I made the front a little extra higher on the front so that I can put in a drawstring like this one.
I’m going to make/get stockings as well. It should turn out nicely ^_^ I went through all the vintage fabrics and stuff that my grandma gave me and I think I’ll use some of it in this costume. I have about a yard and a half of a nice sea foam coloured silk which I’d like to use for the spencer but I’m not a huge fan of sea foamy colour… oh well I’ll have to see.
