Gown made from mauve taffeta underskirt with lavender and black tulle over skirt. The bodice is a fully steel boned corset modeled after a Victorian pattern and then altered. The lace is black, embroidered French lace that was hand cut and placed and then over 1000 glass beads and sequins were sewn on by hand. Took almost two weeks of about 6-9 hours a day of beading to complete just the beading. Laces up in the back with double sided satin ribbon.
This piece is NOT for sale.

This is an upcycled, vintage bustier I've been working on ALL DAY. XD There is a soft white lace that I overlaid atop it and hand-stiched. Its gathered in the middle and a silver, crystal brooch adorns the middle. There is another brighter white lace layered underneath it at the bottom. There is a knitted lace trim with satin ribbon running through the middle that I sewed into each piece of the boning on the sides. The sides and bottom are lined with several lines of crystals that I stitched in individually. Each one is attached into the piece because I know how much I dislike getting an article of clothing that is beaded and they are all attached on just one string so when one comes off, they ALL have to come off hahaha. The beading totally kicked my butt btw... OMG BACK HURTS SO BAD! Secures in the back like a normal bra with several hooks. Two sets for a little bit of wiggle room (or not if you like it tighter!)
This piece is SOLD.
