Memories of Stardust by JenniferWeiler Memories of Stardust by JenniferWeiler
This is an upcycled, vintage bustier I've been working on ALL DAY. XD There is a soft white lace that I overlaid atop it and hand-stiched. Its gathered in the middle and a silver, crystal brooch adorns the middle. There is another brighter white lace layered underneath it at the bottom. There is a knitted lace trim with satin ribbon running through the middle that I sewed into each piece of the boning on the sides. The sides and bottom are lined with several lines of crystals that I stitched in individually. Each one is attached into the piece because I know how much I dislike getting an article of clothing that is beaded and they are all attached on just one string so when one comes off, they ALL have to come off hahaha. The beading totally kicked my butt btw... OMG BACK HURTS SO BAD! Secures in the back like a normal bra with several hooks. Two sets for a little bit of wiggle room (or not if you like it tighter!)

This piece is SOLD.

Thanks for viewing! <3

Haha I have a few planned - just a matter of finding the time. I went back to school this year so I have a few things in the making they're just coming along slower than usual. (:

Do you make these? and, is it easy?

Yes, I make all of the work in my gallery. Putting the pieces together is easy after I designed it. But detailing is definitely difficult and can really hurt your back if you're hunched over it too long not to mention hand-sewing can crack your hands to the point of bleeding if you don't keep them hydrated hahaha.

I agree with a previous comment, you really have an eye for beauty. All your pieces are so interesting, but I have a weak spot for lace over all your other more 'elaborate' stuff (as if the lace ones weren't elaborated...) I like your more colorful, ornated (is this a word, I hope it's understandable) and feathered works, but your lace ones have all the elegance and beauty for me

Thank you, hun! Haha no worries there, I definitely have a soft spot for lace as well. That's why it's in 100% of everything I do haha! I'm inspired a lot by Victorian fashion so I suppose that's where it probably comes from. (:

This must be really expensive for you to buy all this and then craft it into such beautiful pieces. Is It?
I am just awed by the intricacy and shiny...stuff :I

It depends. Sometimes I can get really good deals on fabric and materials but sometimes, they are really expensive. Generally you can tell by the price if I'm selling it how much money I put into materials.

Aww haha well thanks. (:

Very nice; I make corsets; and I really havn't even got as far as this; to be able to use lace. (I know it's not a corset technically speaking; but most people would say it's really close)

Thank you, hun! Lace is a lot of fun to use once you get the hang of it and I use it in practically everything lol. Just keep practicing and you'll get there! :hug:

Haha yeah, it's all good. A lot of people don't know the difference. (:
