redesigned embroidered corset

By spotogspindel | March 22, 2016

Today´s embroidery-project is making a redesigned embroidered corset. Or even better yet: up-cycled! I finally decided on which old embroidery to use (and found another that kind of matches for the side-parts)


It´s been a couple of years since I last made a corset and I can´t find my pattern, so I´m winging it (Yikes, I probably shouldn´t admit that!).


Re-drawing the pattern from an Elizabethan corset I made a decade ago, seeing where the boning is, and …well, just getting it done. I´m hoping it´s still “in my bones” after all these years, I did sew quite a bit of them for Les Miserables (albeit a different pattern).


I did take some time off with a couple of my favorite kids too, it is Easter after all. They got cameras for Christmas, and today we went on a photo-safari! I gave them different assignments, connected with shapes and color and texture, and we were really on a discovery-tour in one of my favorite ship-docks.


And treat of all treats: Ecoscenography posted on their website about my set-design for the Salmon Surveyor. So proud and so humble and so inspired to continue down that road of sustainable design! (click picture for link)

    It is already clear that the corset will be beautiful. No surprise! How fun to do a photo safari with the kids, I love that idea. And congratulations on both the brilliant spin on sustainable design and on the shout-out on the web!
