If I had $1800 that had to be spent on one item of clothing [Dec. 7th, 2007|05:20 pm]

It would be this.

However, I may be able to use the "lace up sleeve" idea in the future when I get a corset made if I ask the corset maker. Batwing coverage is a good thing.

Ooh, that's pretty! I have a red tunic I got at Hot Topic a few years back that has laced sleeves. It's one of my favorite articles of clothing.

I hate to be adding to your clothing *crack* but have you ever looked here?


I know batty (the designer) personally, and she definitely does some very quality work.

I have a gf that makes a lot of my dresses for SCA, and also makes wedding dresses and such...she made one similar to this recently, and ironically I actually have that butterfly material ;)

You can have any reputable and talented seamstress/dressmaker/whatever they wanna be called to make this for you at a fraction of the cost. $1800 be damned!
Truely the most expensive aspect of any wedding dress is actually just the fabric. :)

I think you should totally have one made...though maybe attach the sleeves to the corset or something? Because in one pic the space between sleeve and corsett top makes the model look like she has extra skin issues under the arms!

It is beautiful :)

Quality corsetry is expensive because of the time it takes and the supplies. It also takes talent to make a great fitting corset for someone with a 12" difference between their bust, waist, and hips (seriously). I will ALWAYS be willing to pay more for a corset made by someone with talent (I've had enough of them to be able to tell the difference).

Man I LOVE me some corsets.

That is why I appreciate Amy...she's one of those "mutants" that can look at something and somene and whip out a perfect pattern. Disgusting!
For a very plain, just workhorse-type of corset is about $80. Get more decorative, and obviously the cost goes up with time and intracasies....

But then, I don't need a pretty corsett under an Elizabethan gown! *laugh*

Good color combos however the execution could be better. The lines were not straight in a few of the pieces and you could see bunching. I think that you could do better by going to a professional and not a hobbyist.
