Sooo . . . back at college for two weeks, then holidays again :)
Project ball gown has been over thrown for
P R O J E C T C O R S E T R Y
which consists of making up 2 mocks, a corset (over the next weekish) and an under-corset used to base our
D R A P E D G O W N
on . . . very excited, have amazing ideas already :) and found my fabric :)

this is a diagram of what the corset does to the body, it is known as the S-Bend shape. This was very popular during the Regency period, as well as a few other era's in history such as the Roccoco, Edwardian and Elizabethian eras.
Then some are just ridiculous. Unbelievable really . . .
This woman, Cathie Jung, has the smallest recorded waist in history. She says corsetry is her life, and that she wears a corset 24 hours a day.
And yes, Oh my . . . men do it too. . . which looks completely ridiculous.
My very worst . . . this must be one of the most revolting things I've ever seen, close to that of those Sky hook things and the surface implant things . . . They are called corset piercings. Yuck.
P.S. read, follow, comment, enjoy :)
