Quince in Velvet

Another from the same Blossoms in velvet idea as the pale wisteria version but adapted to suit this model. I am more than pleased with the results :) She really enjoys bobbinet corsets and I have been experimenting with it over the past year. I really love the styling and am over the moon.

Traveling to London

DSC_5998

My flight was delayed by 3 hours. I quickly got placed onto an alternate connection (and cut out one layover so it was a fantastic change as I also got to fly out on a brand new Virgin Atlantic plane). The flight crew did a bingo game with us in the waiting room while I stitched the final details on this lovely red corset. I won a $50 Delta flight voucher which was a lovely surprise.

Daze of Laur

One of the corsets I made for display at the Barefoot coffee show that wasn’t completed in time. It became a gift for our lovely nanny. It was done in Daze of Laur brown and orange with this delicate & fun vintage french trim along each edge. I’d love to revisit this color scheme. Now to go find the rest of that trim, I had a touch left…

“Sugared Smoke”

The view from our room in Las Vegas:

After lacing Long corset (working title) onto the pillow I waited till dark and we took her for a shoot around the Las Vegas strip. I added a beaded shiny capelette to fancy up the look:

After hauling her around Vegas through the casinos I noted that she was now “Sugared Smoke”, sugar from the accident of placing her in a bag full of sugar (thank my son for that one) and smoke because of how stinky all the hotels are from people smoking. My hair picked up the smell a lot more than the corset thankfully. But now she has the taste and smell component of the “Five senses”. Continue reading “Sugared Smoke”
