Look at the beautiful remains of this quilt!! I found this awhile back and rescued it from the trash. I understand why it was being thrown away; each time it’s picked up, pieces of fabric flake off. It’s very delicate and I have no idea how old it is or how it ended up in this condition. I think this is made of silk and was eaten into deterioration by moths…or it was ironed on the wrong setting. It makes me want to quilt more!
First piece made from my new studio n.n I’m still moving everything in, so this won’t be the final photo area! You guys know I’m obsessed with Creepyyeha and her style, so I tried to make something that I think she’d wear. Choker: Creepyyeha Sheer bodysuit: ebay Bra: Marlies Dekkers Harness skirt: made by me
It’s made of purple netting (thicker and stretchier than tulle) over solid blue, and the fins and lining are made of the same stuff. The eyes are some magically iridescent orange fabric that frays like a motherfucker.
The fin pattern is just quilting with silver thread, and the lips are just the lining overlapped a bit. The side fins are both pockets!
If I had to redo this, I would probably put some batting in the fins, they’re a bit floppy.
Breaking gravity with math and fabric! I am so so very proud of this overbust I’ve developed for Penny @underbust. It’s been a looong time in the making, and a huge personal achievement for me as a pattern maker. Couldn’t ask for a more stunning and patient fit model! <3
