Bullet Bra&Girdle/Rewiew

I got recently some beautiful presents and two of them are Cabaret Bullet Bra from What Katie Did and Vargas Longline Girdle in Plum from Kiss Me Deadly (also with matching Gio stockings).

I am satisfied with the Bullet Bra. On the beginning it was quite a new feeling. Sure it looks funny when combined with tight T-shirt, but it feels good when I wear it under the blouse. Now I have two of them.The first,white one is bought on ebay from retrogirl1966 and I really like it. It is the same as on the photo but all in white.

Cabaret Bullet Bra from WKD

   Girdle looks fantastic on the fabulous Morgana, a little less fantastic on me, but I'm just an average woman.
As I always buy black or white underwear, some color is always welcome and plum color is one of my favorites.
    Had a little trouble with the closure until I figured out that I have to buckle and then pull over.The only thing that I do not like are the claspstheir position actually. All three clasps should be even and they are not. The middle (side) clasp is too long, and the rear is too short. It doesn't look nice if it is closed with all three clasps...stocking is too stretched on the back side and crimped on the side. 
Dear underwear manufacturers! The rear clasp always have to be the longest. Same goes for the suspender belts.         


Now I already have a nice collection....

Vargas dress in black - nice underwear

  One more thing.
If you don't like corsets but you would like to shape some of your body parts I recommend Rago Shapewear.

Violet Cocktail Dress

This dress is made of crash taffeta. Pattern for the bodice is taken from Burda Style Magazine 6/2006 style 123. size 42. But like many times before, cut just does not match the image. Neckline is too wide, it descends to half shoulder but it is fortunate that the girl has a lush neckline so that it does not slip further down. She likes it.

I also made a overskirt for the dress

The skirt is made of wool blend, gray with pink pin stripes. I took 8 gore slim skirt pattern and in the middle of the front of the skirt I have attached a piece with pleats. Skirt is fully lined.

 This skirt was made for Ivana aka Greta(Gretel) MaCabre a beautiful redhead Pin-up girl.

Almost the entire month has passed since my last post!!! Unbelievable how time passes quickly when you have lot to do. Yes ... I was quite busy during this month. I made some nice things to take with me when visiting Tear it up festival in Medulin,Croatia. 
I also made two formal dresses..one for the future bride and one for her mother. The main thing ... a wedding gown, is under construction. It is princes line dress with strapless neckline, made of georgette with organza overlay. The bust line will be accented with organza V-pleating. Sateen band sash will define the empire waistline...maybe with a tiny bow. I'm planing to sew a satin jacket or bolero for the church appearance.
We made a first rehearsal..pattern fits, tomorrow is the second rehearsal.

I'm also working on my blue double breasted dress that I will probably wear to Burlesque Show.
Now I have to find a time to photograph everything.
