Some #shiny stuff arrived 😍 This, paired with the #lace I found the other day, and this old #ufo, I should be able to redesign it all and make it look ok-ish... #wip #embellishments #unfinishedobject #silk #dupioni #mesh #rhinestone #beads #serindecorsets #serinde

Found THE perfect match for my #lilac #lavender #dupioni #silk : a discounted (lucky me!) #lace #coupon in which I'll cut several #appliques . The lace is "reasonably" shiny, and I'll see how I'll embellish the rest of the #corset : #beads or #rhinestones or #pearls or just #allthethings πŸ˜‚ #embellishment #inspiration #ufo #embroideredlace #marchesaintpierre #paris #bargain #silkbaron #serindecorsets #serinde

#fabricdye update: so, here's the result ! Funny to see that everything was #ivory #cream before, and took the #dye in a very different way ! The main issue I have is that the product itself smells AF 😷 It stinked in my whole flat yesterday (despitr having ALL the windows open all the time), and I had to put the #lace outside to dry as I was getting headaches 😣 I washed everything again today, it still stinks πŸ˜‘ So... unfortunately, I won't keep the lace in my #stash, the smell is too strong. I will though keep the little #purple roses and butterflies, and may use them on a project later. #experiment #lilac #doityourself #homedye #seamstresslife #serindecorsets #serinde

My designated victims that will dye today. I have no idea what I'm doing, not expecting much. If it turns out well enough to be used on a project, cool. If not, no big deal. Also: as I have only like 60g of #fabric and the #dye is for +1kg, should I use it all, but shorten the "cooking"time, or should I try to divide the product to get the right amount ? Experience and advice welcome 😁 #lace #tulle #dye #homemade #petitchimiste #experiment #seamstresslife #serindecorsets #serinde

So... received this #lilac #dye today... will do my first attempt at #polyester #lace #dying with some bits I have left. The idea is to see if I can get anything decently matching my lilac/lavender #dupioni #silk ... Results to be posted later... Hipe my kitchen won't turn all lavender by the end of the day 😁 #seamstresslife #polyester #trialerror #fabricdye #firsttime #serindecorsets #serinde

Listing my #ufos #unfonishedobjects This #corset has been put away for 3-4 years maybe for various reasons. I think it's time to use thos shell and turn it into some proper #overbust with tons of #embellishments #beads #rhinestones #lace and all the things I can't think of now 😊 #corsetmaking #mesh #nude #dupionisilk #inspiration #todolist #design #brainstorming #revamping #restart #newbeginning #serindecorsets #serinde

Today is #goddamnitimsoshort day, a.k.a. #hemdatdress day 😁 I need to shorten a #vintage #dress by 15cm/6in !! It's so long, it would reach the floor even if I wore heels ! So, on to marking the cutting line... #retro #alteration #soscaredtoscrewit #blackdress #petite #petitelife #seamstresslife #serindecorsets #serinde

I finally found the right #storage #box for my 9 #antiquecorsets . Now they're carefully stored, wrapped in #acidfreepaper . I even started labelling them ! #collection #antiques #vintage #fashion #corsets #hoardingstuff #crazycorsetlady #underwear #historicalcorsets #seamstresslife #serindecorsets #serinde

Yesterday I went to the #grandegaleriedelevolution at the @museedhistoirenaturelle #paris and had the opportunity to look up close at some real #baleen on a #whale #skeleton Have you ever seen any, whether on whales in museums or in #antiquecorsets ? I have a few #antiques that feature actual baleen #whalebone as #boning so it was very interesting to be able to look at the "raw" #material #fashionhistory #fashionevolution #notions #materials #seamstresslife #serindecorsets #serinde
