At the moment I’m working on a new burlesque costume for a dancer in Germany. Inspired by the costume I made for Marlene von Steenvag. The colours are deep purple satin and beautiful mint green lace. The order is for a tailor made underbust corset with 6 suspender attachments, bra, knickers and a bustle. These wonderful images of Marlene were taken by photographer Paul Green for More Human, which is a Berlin based company working on creative projects.
At the moment I’m working on the corset. I love the colour combination my customer picked. Once the suspender attachments are on the corset and I have closed it with purple satin bias binding, the eyelets will go in and the lacing. I will then get started on the bar and knickers which I will make in purple and decorate. I will add more images to show the process of my work.
