Steampunk Hourglass Corset

Good evening everyone :-D 

I would like to share with you a project I finished yesterday. I made Steampunk Hourglass Corset for a friend who started her own business this year. She owns a wedding and gala dress rental salon.

I made this corset using Hourglass Corset Pattern by Anna Hardman. It is made out of scraps from Graphic 45 'French Country' paper collection (Patterns and Solids) and it´s hand sewn. I didn´t sew together front parts, instead I added eyelets to the both front parts of corset and connected them with jewelry wire. 

After corset was done, I embellished it with old necklace chain and filled glass vials. I used vintage safety pin to close "the belt" (chain). I also embellished corset with paper flower, colored with distress ink Brush Corduroy and water.

I am entering my project to contest/event Made by me made for You! (Selber Machen - Glück verschenken!), organized by TOPP-Kreativ. All the details about this contest/event here. I used tag by TOPP-kreativ (Downloads - Geschenkanhänger), which I printed on white card stock paper and tied it with wool thread to the belt of the corset.
