I've been making a dress for a fetish ball I'm going to in a couple of weeks. The theme is Fantasy Dress. Well, the skirt and jacket I made, the corset I bought a while ago. I've really enjoyed making it and its taken me back to when I used to do good old textiles in GCSE! I know what I'm doing, but i never learnt to do it technically correctly. So I cant do the measurements or the correct bias lines or anything (or cant be arsed to do it properly).
I think I want to spend some more time on the singer and involve it in my personal project for the year. Maybe making some skin costumes?

Anyway, here are my inspirations and the costume itself.

I will hopefully, look a lot better on the night of the ball than I do in my mums bathroom minus make-up stockings shoes and HAIR.

Projects in the back of my mind.

Some projects which are in the back of my mind/have made a start on. The first one is a cook book, for biscuits. I want to make a small recipe book to make home made versions of classic biscuits. I want it to include very simple lino cuts and for it to only be just under a5 size.

I was working at the Natural History Museum this summer, which was one of the best things i've ever done. I wanted a little bit to do the basement and secret doors and corridors of the museum for my secret london project....
