I've had recent requests for a tutorial on basic pleating and gathering, so here you go If anyone would like a tutorial on anything else (corset making, bone tipping, etc.) just let me know and I'd be happy to make one!
Hehe, I have a short day of school tomorrow, so I'll see if I can't make another tutorial on something^^ As for corset, I think I'll make a Victorian tutorial first since that's the next kind of corset I'll be making.
I'm thinking about making a tutorial for easy faerie skirts too...
that would be great too. SPecially since I'll soon need to get cracking on my Daughters Ice Fairy Costume...she's mad enough that she can't wear it saturday. I need to take pics of the fabrics I'll be using it it.
Faerie skirts are surprisingly easy and fun to make. I make all of mine by making a short base out of opaque material, then doing the rest out of draped layers of organza. I usually burn holes in the organza first with an iron wrapped in aluminum foil (can get messy). Then I shred all the ends with a bread knife on carpet before decorating the skirt with silk leaves/flowers, etc.
now if i wan to pleat something i know how.lol. the corset making one woulod actually be awesome. Im making a bodice for the So cal faire soon and Id like to eventually do a corset. Id like to see how you do it. lol -<3 harlot
Okay, well I'll make a tutorial for corset making the next time I make one (which'll be soon). At So. Cal. faire, be sure to check out Single Tree hair spirals and flasks. It's run by my sister and her husband
