Burlesque

Burlesque themed corset, I designed and completed this for part of my foundation course; with inspirations from ‘Marie Antoinette’ and historical garments I came to form a highly ornamented and lavish corset. I used a combination of Satin and lace trimmings and a mix of decorative beads, and for the ruched shoulder pads, I had used beads, buttons and lace giving a luxuriant pile effect and an enhanced femininity.
The colour palette includes soft pastel shades of crème, white, silver and gold.
The silhouette is very stiff because of the boning, very difficult to sew into!
Hope you all like it? (click on the pictures for a larger view)

whoa! I can not believe you made it all by myself!
Beautiful! I can not wait to see the results after you're done!
Yeah, they're adorable! I often give them something to eat to get fat fast, but they also often play a special hamster wheel.
Hoho, you're wrong, sweetheart!
Hamsters will eat their babies only if we are often holding their babies, and this makes the smell of hamster's baby differs from its parent, so the mother eat her own baby because they have a different smell than its parent.
Well, actually it was my maid (a male) who has stolen my hamster. I feel very annoyed, but I can't do anything about it because he's not working anymore in my house.
