Remember that annoying art teacher from the movie Ghost World that showed that AWFUL artsy video to her class of apathetic students?
Well that is a great example of artsy vid stereotypes...the kind that take them selves so seriously that it only adds to the hilarity of it all.
So, I decided to have a go at it and try to make my own (below)
did I succeed???

I present to you, my fabulous Victorian style waist cinch corset! It is layered, one layer of this really horrid thick orange and gold patterned fabric, and a top layer of black lace. I used all metal boning (stiff boning for the front pieces and bendy spiral steel boning for my curvy bits). Since I drafted my own pattern for this one (from my body measurements), I messed up the back two pieces and made them unnecessarily small, thus leaving a large 4 inch gap in the back. A normal gap is supposed to be 2 inches. Oops! I'll change my pattern and have better luck next time!
