    Default White Corset, $40.00 online

    OK so I got this custom made corset online for $40.00, and it is really not that bad, BUT, it is just not fabulous enough!! I got some really pretty bridal lace and I keep trying to make this corset look more fabulous but it is just NOT as fabulous as the $300, $400, $500 corsets...

    It is sweet and cute, but no matter where I put this damn lace, it just does not look right!! AH!!!

    I am going corset crazy!!!

    OK actually my ahem, gosh I don't know what you would call him, LOVER, wants me to wear white in a new photo shoot, but I swear, this corset is just not there yet.... I mean, you just have to spend the money to get a decent corset!!!! It doesn't have the boning, so the waist does not go in, it just goes up and down, etc....not long enough...

    How is that done? Where do I get "BONING"!! Hah! H-m-m-m-... well you know, the sewing kind. I was thinking of taking apart something else with BONING... That word... God I am such a dirty slut!

    And the waist is so short, how can I make it go in? I did the lacings so it should go in at the waist, but it's just two peices of cloth sown together you know cheapo, it just won't go in...

    Oh well, it is cute and sweet, but it is not like a $500 perfectly made corset, it is just like something you would wear if you were a teeny bopper. Which is OK...

    And it's hard to find the right "white" bra to go with it, it's an odd shade, not really white, not really ivory, so WHITE looks too bright and IVORY looks too dark, and then it has lace with pearls, etc. so plain bras don't look right.

    Well I guess I will have to do the shoot topless then!!!

    It's not easy being a goth pin-up!!!! It takes work!!

    OK I know you are all on the edge of your seat waiting to hear the news about my white corset, so here it is!

    So I sewed the lace onto the bra and garter belt and the corset, so they all match, and it looks great!!!

    I knew you were concerned about this, so I just thought I would tell you my sewing adventures!

    i have pattern for corsets and stays, i think its by mccalls. it doesnt look too hard to do, but a little tedious and time consuming. might try some time when i got less projects started.

    Mistress Jennifer, there is a good book for beginners of corset making, "The Basics Of Corset Building" by Linda Sparks . see if a Barnes and noble near You can get it for You.

    That's very cool. I need to get a sewing machine. What I have been doing is hand sewing on lace, sequins, trims, tulle on bras, corsets, thongs and garter belts, so I don't really make it from scratch, I just add on the glitz!!

    It really makes them look like a million bucks. One outfit I sewed on green sequines and green Mardi Gras beads!

    But I really should get a sewing machine. It's just that a lot of the stuff I sew has to be hand sewn, any kind of ornate beads or sequins or appliques, all have to be hand done. Which I actually enjoy doing, it reminds me of when I was 16....

    sewing machines are fantastic.. everyone should have one. hehe... i cant really picture sewing a corset with one though, it would be too awkward... heh then again i suck with a sewing machine...
    tried to make a bean bag frog once... heh... it was... sad.
