A new Steampunk bodice design, which is affectionately referred to around here as the "OMG I f-ing need a new dressform so badly, I hope people will like these so I can save up to get one!" bodice :3
No, not really. But that's what runs through my head every time I look at it.
Okay, never mind that ramble. This is a bodice I've had cooking in my head for a while now, and finally
got a chance to pattern and prototype. It's all knit, and very, very comfortable.
It sits lower on your body, so it's kind of an underbust piece, but casual enough not to illicit too many odd looks from people if you wore it casually. This one is brown knit, but I plan on having a few in tan as well, shortly (i.e. when I can find the time to make a bunch of these!)
The strap in the back is decorative, to give a holster-like effect, which I really like. Details like that always seem to be overlooked, IMO. Also, down the front, there are a bunch of large buttons that I still
have left over from making Vash jackets all those years ago. I have hundreds of them
, and I'm so happy to finally have a use for them!
So, help me get rid of all those extra buttons laying around! If you want to order one of these, I think they're only going to be $35-$40, so one of the cheapest pieces I've ever made
. Why? Because I love you. And also because I need a new dressform badly Taken with my cell phone, so I apologize about the quality.
