Hello!

Today has been a pretty productive day for me. I did a lot of work in preparation for my shop opening on ETSY, on July 1st. Not as much as I could have done, given that I whipped through my goals like nobodies business, and had plenty of time for wasting on the internet.

On a high note- I found the ring I am going to get my fiancée for his wedding ring! I am 100% sure about this one, as it will be a customized ring from a jewelry artisan on ETSY. I can’t post the link or a picture just yet, as darling fiancée reads this blog. But soon, I promise, you will see the beauty!

Speaking of the wedding, I am making my own dress, from scratch, pretty much. It will be a corset top, a puffy tea length skirt and a little bolero/shrug thing, as well as a miniature top hat. All in cabernet, apple green and burnt orange. Yummy. So the corset top is made from a drastically redesigned patter from Simplicity, I think. Redrafted with the help of my future sister in law. This is the final version, after several mockups were made. Not in the wedding fabric, though. Essentially a final mockup.

The front has a simple sweetheart neckline.

The bottom has a dropped waist, which we straightened to create a smoother line.

The back was a modesty flap (not sure what else to call that flap that goes behind the lacing.

The entire thing will be boned with steel boning, and will not have a busk. It will not be a shaping corset, by any means. I happen to like my organs right where they are.
