Custom Corset Dress & Mini Skirts :)

This week I had a couple of custom items to make using some special fabrics the customer sent me, which was fun. The first is a cute red and white polka dot dress based around the style of my denim rocker chick corset dress. It has a fitted upper body in polka dot with silver D-ring lace up front with white ribbon and white faux leather, with white lace trim on the bust and polka dot halter neck strap. The lower half is a gathered polka dot cotton circle skirt with lots of white tulle underneath and mini faux leather lace up panels. I enjoyed making this dress and was really pleased with how it turned out, so I hope my customer loves it too!

My customer also sent me some very cute penguins print fabric and pirate skull and crossbones print to work with. She wanted some mini skirts in the same style as some of my existing punky mini skirts with black stretch cotton waistband and gathered two tier lower half with the penguins and skull fabrics overlayed on black cotton, with matching ribbons lace up on the corset style waistband.

And lastly I made another pair of one of a kind leggings using up some fabric scraps that had been discontinued, they are made from black cotton with diagonal and overlapping panels of fluorescent green and black stripey print and black and white star print with plain black snuggly cotton backs. The green is a lot brighter in real life, the photos dont do it justice! They are available in a UK size 8/10 but the full info and measurements can be found in the one of a kind and unique leggings category on my clothing website.

New One of a Kind Items for sale now.

This week I've been getting creative (and messy) with bleach and paint! I thought it'd be cool to try making some corset tops and studded leggings using bits of denim fabric that I've decorated and played around with first so that they look more unique and interesting than the usual fabrics I use. If I can figure out a way of making a lot of fabric quickly I will consider making some repeat alternative clothing items in the style, but for now these are just one of a kind pieces.

This is my favourite-it's a studded glam rock vest top in semi stretch textured denim with bleach and paint splatter effect. The front is decorated with black faux leather and silver pyramid studs with an adjustable lace up front fastening. Lace up panels are featured on the sides and back of the vest top, made from more black faux leather, silver eyelets and ribbon. This glam rock inspired top is available in size 6/8 only from the one of a kind glam rock and metal clothing section of my website.

Next is a matching pair of unique studded leggings, for which I decided to go for a more asymmetrical look than my usual leggings just to make them extra unique and individual. They are made with black faux leather look lycra with diagonal panels of bleach and paint splattered denim across the front and black strips of studded faux leather with pyramid studs, rounded studs and star studs. They are available from the One of a Kind Unique Rock Leggings category of my website, in uk size 8/10, with specific measurements listed.

And lastly another corset top made with some slightly bluer denim which left a more silvery blue effect after being bleached. It has a zipper fastening at the front which opens right out, with antique look pyramid studs running down the middle. The back is made from black faux leather with an adjustable lace up fastening and decorative strips of studded bleached denim. The spaghetti straps are also made from faux leather, studded with mini studs and cross over at the back to give maximum cleavage and support. It is roughly a UK size 8/10 but the full measurements are listed in the one offs and custom clothing category of my website.

Matching Top & Leggings and a Custom Dress Top!

Last week I made a few new bits, including a matching glam rock style vest top and leggings from the awesome textured denim fabric I used to make the one of a kind top in my last post. The top is a fitted vest top in this semi stretch textured denim, decorated with spike shaped pieces of black faux leather on the front and back which are studded with silver eyelets. The front features a zipper fastening that opens right out, more decorative faux leather strips and silver rounded studs either side of the zip. On the back is a lace up panel which is mainly for show but can be adjusted somewhat. It will be custom made to fit your own measurements and is available from the Glam Rock & Biker Chick Clothing section of my website.

The spiked hairband and skull locket are available for sale from Glamasaurus who has a whole range of gorgeous necklaces, bracelets, brooches, earrings and more!

The matching leggings are made from black leather look lycra with angular panels of textured black and grey denim and more swirls and spike shapes cut out of leatherette and studded with silver eyelets. I think these are one of my favourite pairs of leggings I've made, all the layering on the front makes them thick and robust feeling, while the backs are still stretchy but snug. They are available custom made to fit from the tights and leggings section of my site.

And lastly I had a new custom order to make a hooded dress top from a jack skellington tee that she sent me. It's made with stretch black cotton with purple jack logo and panels of purple on the front and back, purple hood lined with black and purple cuffs on the sleeves. I really enjoyed making this dress top and was pleased with how it turned out. Simple but super cute!

New new new!

Lots more new stuff to show off, mainly because I've gotten so behind with this! Firstly I decided to make an updated version of one of my old dresses which I was no longer happy with. It's a gothic corset dress made with a fitted body in black satin, with halter neck strap, zip up front fastening and metal D rings which form a lace up panel on the front and lace trim on the bust. The back features another corset style lace up panel with large silver eyelets and black ribbon. The tutu style skirt is made with black satin and tiers of gothic black tulle beneath and another shorter tier of tulle on top. It is available in regular and plus size, custom made to fit your own measurements from the corset dresses section of my website.

Next is a new corset top similar to the red satin burlesque corset top in my earlier post. It's a fitted top made with purple satin overlayed with black floral lace, with a halter neck strap, zipper fastening that opens right out and a black ribbon lace up panel at the front. The bust and lower waist of the top are finished with black lace trim. This corset top will be made to fit regular or plus size and can be viewed on the corset tops part of my site.

Next is a new pair of gothic/rock style studded leggings which I'm quite in love with. They are made from black glossy wet look lycra with snug fitting plain black back and cut away panels on the front which are filled with black semi see through lace and decorated with black strips of faux leather which is studded with large silver pyramid studs.

And lastly I found this awesome textured denim fabric which I've become quite obsessed with. I decided to make a new special one of a kind top, as most of the ones I had listed on my website have sold. It's made with alternate panels of textured denim and black denim, semi stretch for a snug but comfortable fit, with individually cut black faux leather swirls and spike shapes on front and back in a symmetrical pattern and studded with silver eyelets. The top fastens with a zipper at the back and opens right out and there is a faux leather halter neck strap, decorated with more silver eyelets. The top will fit roughly a UK size 8/10 but the full measurements can be seen in the one offs and custom clothing page.
