Green fairy corset by sombrefeline Green fairy corset by sombrefeline
Fashion/make-up/model : me
photo =TrollDuNord

My new corset, done with a Laughing moon pattern.
several hours of work, suffering. and blood (my poor, poor fingers...)
I quite like the result, thought I'm a bit disappointed by the chest. I was expecting it would make the best advantage of this part of my body ;)
I don't know if I will do another corset, it's so much work. I'll leave myself some time to think about it.

Bon ben, voilà, mon nouveau corset, fait à partir d'un patron Laughing Moon.
cette petite chose représente des heures de boulot et de souffrance. et de sang aussi (ouille mes pauvres doigts).
Je suis assez satisfaite du résultat, même si je suis un peu déçue des goussets à la poitrine. j'aurais aimé qu'ils mettent mieux en valeur cette partie de mon individu ;)
Je ne sais pas si je ferais un jour un autre corset, c'est tellement de boulot. je me laisse un peu de temps pour réfléchir.

Nice looking corset overall, and I love the colour! The problem you mention with the chest is why it's important to have someone fit you properly and make muslins or toiles. It is almost impossible to fit yourself adequately. A dressmaker's dummy just doesn't work for something that has to fit as well as a corset.

BTW: if you get blood on fabric as you are working, the best remover is your own saliva! Sounds gross, but put spit onto a piece of cloth (colourproof!) and blot the stain. Comes out like magic as long as you get to it right away!
What do you think?

If you are trying to make a corset that accentuates your chest you might try a different shaped neckline or even do a under bust or half corset.
Those make ones chest look voluptuous. lol
Personally though I think this looks great! I love the color and shape and what you are wearing it wit his cute!

well, I already have three underbust, so I felt like doing a full corset, so I bought this pattern. I was a bit disappointed because on the photo, the chest looked more... voluptuous than what it turned out on me.
but still, I love this corset, and I think green was a good idea :)

Gottcha. I hate it when that happens. Somethings just don't come out quite like you want.
But Green and corsets are always a good idea!

It's a pretty corset and worth the work. I want to learn how to sew so I can make my own clothing.

Very nice photo too.

J'adorerai en avoir un, mais je sais aussi que je ne supporte pas les baleines...
en tout cas ça te va vraiment à ravir!

merci beaucoup, je suis contente de voir les commentaires que mon corset suscite :)
Pour les baleines, c'est une question d'entraînement. Si tu as du mal à les supporter, essaye d'éviter les baleines qui appuie sur les côtees, c'est souvent celle-là qui donnent l'impression d'étouffer.

c'ets normal pour les commentaires, ça à dû te demander beaucoup de travail et le résultat est là!

Pour les baleines, ce n'est pas qu'elles m'étouffes, mais c'est plutôt qu'elles me donnent très mal au dos...

je le trouve tres joli et bien réalisé. Je me doute que cela doit être assez difficile à faire et demande beaucoup de patience et d'heures de travail ; mais le résultat en vaux le peine bravo. Pour en refaire un autre laisse tes doigts se reposer lol!!!!!!

pour le prochain corset, vu qu'on a prévu un tour à Camden à Londres, je crois que vais plutot faire travailler une couturière et laisser reposer mes doigts

Mais ce n'est pas ton premier corset pourtant ?

En tout cas j'adore le résultat ! J'étais un peu dubitative quant à la couleur mais finalement ça rend bien :)

merci :) le vert me va bien en fin de compte, Marion avait raison.
Pour les corsets, j'ai ai déjà fait deux, mais pas aussi élaborés au niveau de la couture et de la forme. et pas aussi soignés au niveau des finitions. et c'est ce qui prend le plus de temps en fait.
