So around Halloween me and a colleague (Julia, head of lighting) where planning to go to a party.
Now I had my costume all worked out. But I surprised Julia by making her a custom corset for said event. It took me about two full days to make the corset. It was mostly made of stiff cotton with the outer fabric being wool. The wool fabric was cut on the bias (e.g. diagonally on the fabric). the corset was partially covered with rhinestones and boned throughout.
Here are two pictures of the corset mid production.
(Note the mannequin in the back, It's wearing my muslin version of my winter coat. more later)
And Julia showing off the corset onboard the Les Mis tourbus.
