Too many things on my desk this week. I’m working on two things at the moment. The first is a bridal corset which I have mocked up in stiff fabric for the first fitting. I just happened to have a few metres of Toile de Jouy to laying in my fabric storage so I used that. Once I perfect the fit, it will be cut in corset canvas.
The second thing I’m working on is my next bridal collection. As you’ve seen in my previous posts, I have been concentrating on shape and silhouette. Now that I have the six main shapes decided, it’s time to look at the details like lace, embroidery and beading embellishments.
I’m just playing around with some vintage laces as edgings and as part of the construction. I’ve a trip to London (and later on Lyon) where I hop to pick up some more trimmings like these.
