One of a kind replicas
That was the subject of an email I just got. Didn't bother to open it, of course.

Today was Dump Day here at work, where we were encouraged to do agressive cleaning. The top of my desk is now visible for the first time in.... um... a really long time. I should dust, too.

They fed us lunch today, even. And it was good, for a wonder. I was expecting something like Planet Sub, but we got Jack Stack. BBQ may not be my favorite, but I don't turn my nose up at it if it's free. Well, not completely up at it.

Did I mention I am making ANOTHER corset? It's using the pattern I used for the Oblivion corset (the Oblivion dress being on hold) but with a pretty print on the outside. I am not sure about the strength of the fabric I am using for a base. Oh, well. Live and learn.

When ordering the busk for the corset, I couldn't resist some Truely Victorian patterns for: blouses, walking skirt and petticout. And, I bought a meter (METER! in the US. What is this world coming to?) of some pink coutil with some rose pattern woven in. I am VERY curious if they really have the proper coutil weave along with the rose pattern.

I have just lost motivation. I am sure it will come back. Sometime.

Yes, I did post pics of the corset (you will likely remember them when you see them) http://pics.livejournal.com/solan_t/gallery/0000w7sf

The Oblivion dress looks great, although it looks like it would be a lot of work. Although from what I have seen of your work, you can pull it off. I hope the motivation/inspiration comes back so that I can see how do and how fantastic you'll look in it.

I saw the corset pics. I didn't reconize it although I don't know if I have seen it before. Even if I had, I might not have remembered. Distinct patterns/colors/textures I'd remember. With as much as I know about corsets (probably fill a thimble :-) I probably couldn't tell one from another and only remember the uniqueness of material and how good the wearer looked in it.
