The day has come...

Can you believe it? After two years of aching wrists, Pirates of the Caribbean marathons, late nights and hot cups of strong tea, the infamous corset is DONE.
In-fa-mous: having a reputation of the worst kind : notoriously evil

A grand total of 79 hand sewn eyelets...40 pieces of boning... I do still need to find lacing...and have some proper pictures taken.
Keep a weather eye on the horizon...


  1. wow, what an accomplishment!!! They turned out beautifully. And I bet now that all the hard work's done you'll find laces in no time. I'd want to wear them anyway. ;)

  2. Congratulations! It looks lovely and I can't wait to see your "official" pictures!

  10. Hey =] I am starting to look at making my own Elizabeth Swann costumes! :s lol Starting simple... =] What material did you use, to make the corset..? And just wondered if you have a photo of your final product..? =] xxx If it's easier I am on Twitter: @IamLizzie =] thanks! :D



Although I continually talk about movie costumes on this blog, I am not a movie reviewer. Not all the films I discuss are recommended and I do not choose to review weather they are appropriate or not for the simple fact that every person's standards are different. Something that is fine for me may be offensive to some one else and visa versa. If you would like to look into the appropriateness of a title, I recommend I have not seen all the movies I discuss, and am simply interested in the art of clothes in film. I will leave you to decide for yourself if you will watch the movie or not.
