Lingerie!


Is not something I normally do, however it seems to be the only thing I'm sketching right now. I keep thinking about making myself some sort of crazed one piece out of left over mesh from a couple seasons ago.

My only real experience with sewing lingerie has been in some fairly strange circumstances. There was the Laser Bra, which was made out of waxed linen, black cotton, and elastic. I may use this pattern with different fabric for a non-costume piece. The glowing swirls were made using Light-up shoelaces from Dealextreme.com.


A stab at a triangle bra using PVC, wide elastic, and black ribbon. I found that the ribbon really should have been replaced by a stiff elastic.


And the most recent foray into the world of boob, the rose petal bra. This one was ridiculous. I used the triangle bra pattern and cut it out of nude mesh. I then hand sewed 400 polyester rose petals to the cups. After covering the cups in petals, I attached a wide pink ribbon to the bottom, and a thinner pink ribbon for a halter strap. I probably wouldn't have even started this if I hadn't had a lot of time at my day job that allowed me to hand sew while earning money. It took around 20 hours to finish.



Oh! also causing all this to be on the brain, I've been following The lingerie addict on tumblr. So many amazing and inspiring pieces on there all the time.

So, what's next?

More new stuff.

Also, I've been working on getting consistent lighting in the product shots. Tricky when you light your photos with a desk lamp.

Biz not so casual continues






I see a button up shirt thing going on here.

They cover up the tattoos nicely, so that's usually why I wear them to work. That and they're pretty. Pretty is good.

But really I need something more, I'm finding myself stuck in a rut. It's a rut with vintage hermes ties and linen trousers, but it's a rut none-the-less.

Etsy Find!



So I saw these cute little head bands the other day, and I'm a fan.

They're cute, look well made, and are simple and striking enough that I can even imagine myself wearing them, and I never wear accessories.

They're available at Violet Peacock

Biz Cas-u-don't Day 2


It's a challenge! A dare! A revolution!

Going Biz-Caz-ish in an office full of jeans and flip flops. I showed up day one as Katherine Hepburn going golfing, today was a little more me. Tomorrow is currently a mystery.

The outfit consists of a Thrifted tux shirt, a handmade sweater skirt, and some strange handmade leggings, which are available on etsy.
