Vogue Italia shoot

Winter wonderland waspie

Ive been working on a corset and waspie based on the theme of winter wonderland.
The corset still needs a few bits doing to it but my waspie is finally done!! woo! The bone casing looks a bit messy in places and i need to unpick some and redo a few bits but the presentation is tomorrow so it will be staying like this for now and i will have to make the amendments before the hand-in after the christmas holidays.
The pic is not very clear but there are suspender straps coming from the waspie and i made the matching knickers and shrug to go with it.


I've been set a knicker project at uni, to make 6 different styles of knickers, here are a few of mine.

Busy, busy, busy

I've been tres busy over the last couple of weeks and still have a ridiculous amount of work to be getting on with but heres a little peek at what i've been getting upto. This is just a basque i've been making at uni (i didn't choose the fabric) i still have to add some arm straps and suspender straps but i personally think it looks better without. I now have 3 weeks to design, pattern cut and make a corset and basque (or something adapted from a basque pattern e.g a waspie) i am basing mine on a winter wonderland theme, fingers crossed i will get it done in time, eeek!!

Sleeping beauty

its a bit of a tradition that every year my friends & i make each others christmas presents, last year i made them some underwear but this year i thought id make them some night wear. 
I've got a bit of an obsession with sheer vintage looking nighties atm so i thought id have a go at making my own.
I've only made these two so far so will post the others when im done
Apologies for the rubbish photos, the colours aren't actually as dull as they appear in these images.
The top one is made out of chiffon... it was a bit of a pain to sew & my sewing machine tried to eat it on a few occasions but it came out alright in the end, the bottom one is made out of lace and stretch satin.

Underwear as outerwear is a huge trend right now and here is Gaultiers take on it.

Dazed and Confused shoot

W magazine pinup shoot

You may have already seen these images before but i just love them so i thought i 
would post them up anyways.

Can you spot the Strumpet and pink knickers?

Conical Bras

Apparently they're back!
i actually think some of them can look quite cute with a pencil skirt for lounging around the house in, but im not sure id have the guts to wear one out and about.

What do you think of them?

Strumpet and Pink

I need these knickers in my life!!! Unfortunately i am but a poor student so i definately wont be purchasing them anytime soon. 
I may have to make myself some high waisted knickers at some point... thats if i ever have time.
How great would it be to lounge around the house all day in a pair of these?!?

Mr Pearl Corsets

Sorry i've been slacking a bit on the ol' blogging recently, i've been working on my uni summer projects so haven't had much free time. One of my projects was to write an essay on the history of the corset so corsets have been on my brain a LOT lately. I figured it was only fitting that i do a quick cheeky little post on corsets. These corsets are by Mr Pearl, Mr Pearl makes a lot of corsets for celebrities, here are a select few images of his work, look how intricate the details are... I should be designing and making a corset this term but i have a feeling mine will be kept much more simple.
