Where I was for the last month

Some of you may have been wondering where I was :) I just finished up a corset design for starkymonster. It is a WonderWoman dress made out of sparkle PVC.



The following is a finished costume corset dress (Wonder Woman.) It is made out of thick sparkle PVC lined in silver denim. Cuffs and tiara accessories complete the outfit. The entire corset was mostly sewn on a Singer 29-4 foot treadle leather sewing machine using size 160 needles and topstitch thread. The contruction uses welt seams throughout with topstitched reinforcement as well as extra boning channels. 3/8" spiral boning was used throughout except for the busk and lacing bones in the back. Size 00 grommets were set for the lacing. The skirt was made in four panels and is a full circle; it was sewn on and riveted for added strength. The dress dummy was not padded out so there are more wrinkles showing than are actually there. More pictures will follow soon.

Holy. Fucking. Shit.

I don't think I'm going to be able to say "I sew" anymore. I don't sew, I just sort of meddle about with a sewing machine sometimes.

I'm so green with envy I'm about to sprout roots.


Wow.

Just.

Wow.

Well maybe you need a Poison Ivy costume ;)

This project used more leather working skills (rivets and sewing through upwards of 1/4" of PVC in places.)

Did you still want to consult on sewing or are you all set with it?

And because I am a supah dork, comic reference pics!!

Wonder Woman's first few appearances were with a skirt (which I personally find more flattering for people who are not amazon princesses or Lynda Carter), and old school and new school WW (note older WW costume has eagle on chest which was changed to a stylized WW), and Lynda Carter
