So, are any of you ladies or gentlemen wearing a corset as daily wear?  What challenges do you face and what stories do you have about going out socially with a radically altered siluette?Continue

Wilde Hunt Corsetry interview on High and Broad

This was a beautiful example of hand made corsetry.

I received the new corset from corset story. It looks like it fits ok, but it is too hot to season it right now. It is double boned and there is an internal waist tape. I re-laced it to reverse bunny ears.

You will have to keep us updated. I just received my mock-up from Jessica Tiesthatbynde.  She is having me put it through my paces and is ordering my fabric now.  I am so excited to be getting a bespoke waist training corset!

I took a chance and ordered an overbust corset from China.  It is double boned and looks pretty sturdy. If the construction isn't up to standard I will send it right back.

I have no idea.  This is especially funny when you know that Mrs. Sarah Christman live in Port Townsend.  There were no corset panels at this event as far as I know.  Pity...

Wow, just wow!  How on earth did she get her corset on that catty-whampus?

I am just back from a wonderful time at The Brass Screw Confederacy Octipi Port Townsend.  It was a blast.  I did see one thing that particularly tickled me, but for all the wrong reasons.  I was purchasing some lovely french trim and a woman came up to speak with me.  She was wearing a very sheer blouse and her corset over that.  Thing was, her corset was upside down and backwards with the buttons in the back and the laces in the front.  I was so flabbergasted...I . could. not.speak.  Later, I laughed so hard I nearly fell off the bar stool.

Steampunk Iceland is having an event this summer and they are going to use our rules!

Well this one certainly fits like a dream Ms. Carlisle.  Well done!

I have finished making my first (real) Victorian corset for my latest steampunk outfit. (I say real, as I tried one before but it did not work - one cannot fit a corset by one's self). More info at http://offartboard.blogspot.com.au/2014/04/costumes-conventions-and...
