Mirror, mirror on the wall.......

 I like to get design inspiration from movies & books & my latest tank/corset style is from Snow White & The Huntsman.

I  have sewn a few inspiration garments like my: 

Red Riding Cape,

& my Snow White Cape


When I heard about the making of the movie Snow White & The Huntsman I was thrilled as I like these dark fairy tales!  I saw a few previews & the costumes looked dark, edgy & modern.  I came up with this modern tank that looks like a corset from a Canadian designer that I saw in a boutique for $150.00. Skirt was made by me last year.

I used a combination of a Simplicity pattern for the bodice & the style from this book Sweet Nothings.

The fabric is a cotton polyester blend that I got on sale for $5.00 a meter & a package of black ribbon bias tape & that was all I needed for this project.

A little peak in my new sewing room.

sew you later!

A nice result of your inspiration. The ribbon sewed on the corset is a very good idea, which gives a perfect finish to it.
