I've been working on so much new stuff lately, I've gotten really behind with updating my blog and now I'm up to my shoulders in orders to make which is very exciting as things haven't been this good in a while!
Thought I'd show the latest long sleeved tops first as they are the oldest...so first we have a long sleeved black gothic lace top with stretchy semi see-through lace sleeves and centre panel with black ribbon lace up over the top. Next there's a long sleeved top made from big "pot hole" style fishnet with black cotton spike shapes covering the bust and midriff. I think this is one of the most unusual and creative pieces I've come up with in a while and it seems to be the fave overall so far. And lastly another gothic top made from black mesh with cotton covering the bust and waist with individually sewn on skulls on the bust.

The second is a re-make of my previously top selling black and white music print dress. Unfortunately my supplier stopped making the fabric I used to use for the dress and so had to switch to this new fabric, which is actually a better quality and I think looks nicer than the old. For ages I've just been using a link to an image of the fabric as I hadn't bothered to make a dress for myself to model, but finally got round to it yesterday.

Here are the other new things I've been working on. There are two high waisted pencil skirts in stretchy black and white polka dot cotton and stretchy black and white skulls lace with cotton. Both have an elasticated waistband which starts at the thinnest part of the waist and reaches just above kneelength where the skirt goes in to emphasise curves. The other is a cute flowy strappy dress made from black and leopard print velour. It has matching black straps, decorative black lacey trim around the bottom and a big black ribbon sewn on at the sides, which can be brought into a bow at the front.

I've been wanting to make some new items for a while now, but every time I attempt to go into town to buy fabric, it suddenly starts raining so hard that I can't actually see and I end up with make up all over my face and decide I don't want to grace the nice people at the fabric store with my hideous presence and so turn back. I should really invest in an umbrella...
So anyway I finally managed to get there and back without getting wet and so have been blasting out new designs. The first is a long sleeved top made from stretchy black cotton with red and black skeletons lace. There is a big black ribbon which starts round the back and you can tie up at the front to make a cute decorative bow. Then there's a sexy gothic black cotton and black fishnet long sleeved top with a lace up panel at the front and lastly a black cotton top with black and white polka dot sleeves and a white corset-style lace up front.

I've been making a few more new things this week. First there's another corset skirt in navy vintage look tattoo print cotton, which a friend suggested would be cool. So there's the usual stretchy cotton waistband with rah-rah style lower half and adjustable navy ribbon corset style lace up front.
Then we're got an elegant black fishtail skirt which goes in at the knee and splays out at the bottom. The skirt has an elasticated waistband and is made from strechy black velour. I actually really love this skirt, it's very comfortable and looks pretty. And the bit where it goes in at the knee isn't so tight that it makes you look stupid when you walk (as some skirts do), which is always a bonus...
My new dresses consist of a cute gothic black satin corset dress and a black and white beetlejuice stripe style corset dress. They both have halterneck straps, zipper fastenings at the back, two tiers of fabric, 3 tiers of black netting, decorative lace up corset style detail and decorative black bows at the front. They are both roughly 27" long from bust to bottom of the dress and finish about half way down the thigh-just above the knee.
