Coffee Mocha corset: inprogress
This project is turning out to be impossible to photograph. But the first person to see it in person said they wanted it :) So at least it looks good in person! The trim is this lovely stuff I picked up outside of Moro Bay in this neat little trim shop. The shop owner said she imported it years ago from France. I hope to have enough to do along the top and bottom and maybe a few garters…
I’m trying out a new fusible on this sample piece and so far I’m not impressed. I’m hoping some of the strange puckering along the boning channels will even out some once the boning is inserted. If not, this fusible is fired!
That material reminds me of a metallic coffee-colored 50’s cocktail dress that I own. It, too, is beautiful in person but does not usually photograph well because it is almost bronze from one angle and nearly black from another. :)
Exactly! People who have seen it in person have loved it :)
