Decadance by ChiBi-Von-Uber-Kuhl Decadance by ChiBi-Von-Uber-Kuhl
This is my dress from Special Occasion Wear class at TAFE.

Our team consisted of ~Mistress-K, Carley (model), Kako (makeup artist) and myself.
I have to say, we made a pretty awesome team! ^_^

CORSET:
Outer:
green - micro suede, brown - silk dupion, beige - satin back crepe which I smocked using a North American smocking technique called 'lattice" and the black is heavyweight delustered satin which I hand appliqued on top.

Core:
Stiffened linen which has been fused with a medium weight woven fusible interfacing. Each panel has a piece of rigaline boning sewn down the centre (for a total of 10), then a layer of fusible Wadding. Then each sewn seam has spiral steel boning with the centre back opening having 2 lines of spiral steel boning (for a total of 10) and busk opening at centre front.

Lining and binding:
anti-static delustered satin polyester lining.

Eyelets/Closure:
5m of black braiding for the centre back closure.
Eyelets done at Button Mania.

BUSTLE:
Outer:
100% silk dupion. Under structure has been fused. A small amount of netting has been inserted into the pouf to hold it's shape with a lightweight open end zip opening which is hidden by the pouf.

Lining:
anti-static delustered satin polyester lining.

UNDER SKIRT:
Outer:
heavy weight delustered polyester satin.

Lining:
anti-static delustered satin polyester lining.

JEWELRY:
Went hunting to find old watch parts. Ended up opening an old wall clock I found at an antique shop. The lady there gave me the little watch key for free. ^^
Drew up a very dodgy drawing of what I wanted and Wendy showed her mum who magically deciphered what I wanted and came up with something beautiful and quite unique.

The shape the corset gives looks so good.
I was just thinking, the colour scheme and the jewelery is kind of steam-punk.
