Two Corsets – Two Days

Two corsets in two days, now for the finishing work and flossing!
A little tired. 😎



And Now For Some Corsetry…😁

Just needs flossing and a body. NOW I can fit the dress mockup and start fresh. 😎



A New Corset Shape At The Atelier

I’m busy. So much to do and deadlines looming. Three gowns in 20 days isn’t going to happen, I discovered that a new corset shape was needed…scaling my current ones wasn’t enough. Just have to tack down that lace and I’m ready to fit my new bodice mockup! Wish me luck. Time is fleeting.😎


Feminine February

Day Six of #VictorianFebruary hosted by @ladyrebeccafashions is: “Feminine”…there’s nothing that describes that to me more than layers of pink, worn inside and out. There’s a perfect shade of pink for everyone, what’s your favorite shade of pink? πŸ™‚

And It’s All Stripes…

It’s Day 1 of #VictorianFebruary hosted by @ladyrebeccafashions and today the theme is “Stripes”! As a designer, I love stripes…working with them, matching them, creating them with lace or ribbon…stripes are a perfect Victorian era motif!Β  πŸ™‚

I couldn’t resist capturing all these lace stripes in this silk petticoat ruffle.

And a stripey petticoat in my stripey Victorian house in Tombstone….where even the walls and ceilings are stripey with original beadboard paneling. πŸ˜‰

One of my favorite silk gowns where I used dyed to match silk ribbons to create stripes in the silk organza knife pleating…it’s a waterfall of absinthey stripes. Some day, we’ll have Victorian balls again, right? I remain hopeful. πŸ™‚

Velvet ribbon stripes on net with striped matte brocade for one of my favorite 1870s styled gowns. πŸ™‚
