This was such a fun project to work on! Dott shares my love of silly fabrics, and as a Physics Professor, she couldn't resist this fantastic SCIENCE print. On the side panels, the little stars glow in the dark. What could be more fun than that?
This was a bit of an experiment (pun sort of intended) to see whether I wanted to venture into making corsets again this year. I already had Dott's pattern from a corset I made for her about ten years ago. It only needed a little bit of updating, so it was a really good place to start.
It turned out to be snowing on the day the corset arrived at its new home, but that didn't stop Dott from going outside and having her photo taken! Even better, the corset turned out to match a skirt that Dott had made already - a black one with panels of a multicoloured blackboard print.
I'm still deciding whether or not I'm going to be making any corsets for the shop, but I'm definitely very pleased that I had the opportunity to make this one!
