Can you believe I finally finished this outfit which was initially planned for WGT 2012? You might remember that I ran out of scales short before WGT and the order didn't make it in time. But I re-ordered and had the scales sitting around for - oh, let's say half a year *blushes*:
At first I panicked because they were blue (which I didn't order), but the blue stuff was a foil which could be easily removed!
day before yesterday I presented to you the neck corset to the snake
outfit. This corset was much more work! I'm very grateful that the
wonderful Neisella offered me her self developed pattern for a corset with hip gores, otherwise I would probably still be fitting the muslin.
used the same jeans fabric for the outer layer (and matching lining as
well) as for the neck corset, but added an additional lining. This way I
could integrate the bones between both lining fabrics, making for a
cleaner outer look. And non the less, I sewed a lot of aluminium scales
on both hip gores... I didn't count them, but I guess about 650-700
Finally, I can call this outfit finished! Now
I'm looking forward to wearing it completely styled. You can bet I'll
take some pictures for you!
