Steampunk Corset Dress - Custom Work

Well, well well... I'm back from holidays... Seems like I was never gone really! When are the next ones?? ;o)

Here is a dress I custom-made in July - I only recently got the pics, courtesy of Helene.

It was long, but quite fun to make actually!
This is a variation of my fairy dress, with a corset piece, black lace trimming, painted compasses in black and bronze, straps, watch parts, vintage metal buttons, two brooches and a shoulder decoration, a black lace ruffle trimmed petticoat...

It was a joint design collaboration, and what's funny is that, a few days later, I found this drawing I did last year, when thinking about new variations :)

(I have tons of drawings waiting ... but never enough time to make them come alive :-)




I took advantage of this custom order to make the pattern for it and grade it to the next sizes, so... get ready for some more corset dresses! Here's the first one ;o)
EDIT : It is now sold though. But others are available here

Hello,

I saw the beautiful Steampunk Corset Dress you made, you wrote that it was already sold, but that you could make another one.
So I wonder if it is still so? and how much it would cost?

I do not know how to contact you otherwise, but I give you my e-mail;
gabriella.holmstrom@hotmail.com

regards,
Gabriella
