My hip spring is large enough to put fairy trinkets on it (:



Small photo compilation of what it looks like today, this is the tightest I went so far, 58-59 cm on the outside, which is 23”.

I added an extra photo that shows the construction up front better, there’s almost a ‘cavity’ in my side where it takes in the waist, next to the center of my tummy that has a swell to it. It interests me and I’m curious to see if this appears in the other Phoenix corsets too.

That shape is just stunning. Maybe one day if I win the lottery…Sigh


the quilted looking part looks like the fabric is machine sewn to look quilted with a black organza over the top. nice

ramadan is coming and i’m going to do my best again this year to keep this blog ramadan friendly, but i’m not muslim so there’s a chance i could mess up with my tagging.  if i do, PLEASE feel free to let me know!  thank you, and happy blogging!


So stoked that the weather was nice enough today to get a bit of shooting in. My man-thing got a fantastic photo of my arrow in flight.


Corset by Orologi Silenziosi


Thank you lovely people so much for your kind words about the photo I shared yesterday and for none of you mentioning my questionable choice of cardigan (which I promptly removed after my journey on public transit). You guys are the reason why tumblr is so much better than Facebook (but you can follow me there too if you like)!

It’s funny how you can feel like you’re wearing something scandalous when it photographs surprisingly chaste! :p Here are a couple of pictures Shaun and I took on our Doors Open outing yesterday, finally showing off the lattice corset in a nicer setting! It’s still ambitious for me to wear, but I actually found the warmth of the day helped. I’m currently working on another sample piece based from the same pattern with some tweaks to allow slightly more room in the ribs and adapted it to be a 12 panel pattern instead of 10. More on that soon, lots of detailing to be done on this piece and I don’t want to rush through it! ;)



Finally got time to do one corset for myself ^^

Read about the first my collaborations with Threnody In Velvet on my blog

Please do not crop my watermark out of this image.

Please somebody tell me where I can get those stockings.

I am having complete brain failure right now as I have an exam in a few hours, but I know Morgana has stated the brand of the stockings on this image on her page, so if you look on the Threnody in Velvet facebook it’s there :)
I think it begins with an ‘O’

Obsessive Lingerie :)

Many thanks :3



Crazy curvy Rarity corset I made for Penny Underbust

Aw yisss…. I love this corset so much. 





I made a corset!!!




Dieting and waist-training are a powerful combination! But… needing a new, smaller corset every couple of months (and needing a wider hip-spring than is typically available in OTR) has prompted me to learn to make my own! 

So I picked up a used sewing machine, watched a ton of YouTube tutorials, read loads of how-to’s and blogs, dissected an old non-fitting corset for parts, picked up other miscellaneous supplies, and got to work!

Most of what I learned came from Lucy’s 'corset making' playlist, and from Sidney Eileen’s tutorials.

I created the pattern by making a duct-tape form over an old t-shirt, over my modified Josephine by Isabella.


I made a mock-up using cotton canvas, shown below over my cinched Josephine.


Once I was happy with the mock-up I transferred my pattern to two layers of fresh, sturdy, cotton canvas. I sewed the panels together mostly following Sidney Eileen’s Basic two-layer tutorial. The corset I sacrificed for parts was single-boned with spring-steel flats, and I re-used the bones and busk for this first attempt. I wanted to keep it simple, and with a mind towards the coming summer, light-weight. I placed a single bone in the center of eack panel, except the panel containing the busk. I trimmed the corset with a cream-and-white satin ribbon. I should get some white or cream laces, but for now green will do!

So here is the almost-finished corset (just slightly cinched, seasoning will take some time)! I think I will add some flossing, especially since the bones are flats. But this is it! image

Not bad for a woman who hadn’t touched a sewing machine since ‘Home Ec’ class in grade-school!  

Excellent work!!
