More Corsetry

I have a friend getting married in a couple weeks, and a mutual friend wondered if I would make a corset for her bachelorette party. The theme was red and white polka dots.

It was SO much fun to make a surprise corset. We measured one of her ready-made corsets and I just dove in, no fittings at all. Kind of intimidating, but also very exciting.

She was thrilled with the final product, so I think it was a success.

On a completely different note, here's a project that I've been wanting to do for awhile. I took an Ikea picture frame and wanted to drape a mesh fabric over it for earrings. One of my crafty friends suggested cutting up an old pair of fishnets, and voila! I put red fabric behind the plastic. All that's left is to paint the frame, and I'll have a lovely earring rack.
