I made this corset for a Wearable Art parade near me, and only had a couple of weeks to finish it! It’s the first time I’ve ever made a corset or used boning, but am pretty pleased with the effect.
There are over 50 embroidered leaves in the whole outfit, which mounts to a lot of work and hand-stitching.
Cotton, boning, gold thread

Hippie meets grunge in this plaid top with flared sleeves and a round neckline.
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
