If you like quirky Sparklewren corset patterns...
So you lot are bonkers! We've sold something like a dozen old Birds Wing inspired patterns today, variations that I have played with over the past few years. And you know, it almost didn't happen. I'd re-homed a couple with corsetmaking friends but kept forgetting about the others... until this morning Holly said I should see what we have and list some for sale. So it's her you have to thank!
But now I have you to thank in turn. Your enthusiasm for these patterns, even in their rough-and-ready form, has made it clear to me that now is the time to reveal the secret project that has been rumbling along in the background for a couple of years.
I've written a book!
It will be called "A Personal Approach to Corsetmaking" and is being published by Foundations Revealed. It is designed to encourage creativity, boldness, quirkiness, and a lightness of touch within corsetry. It is instructional and though it is pitched to those of you who already make corsets the methods shown are also simple enough for beginners.
In it I have shared techniques, principles, ideas, and more pretty pictures than you'll know what to do with. Oh, and three unique patterns!
You're going to have so much fun playing with the ideas in this book... I just need to finish it first! We're working on the final edits and test prints (so much kudos to my graphic designer, Leanne), so hopefully we'll be ready soon. And now that I've told you about it, I have to finally get it published.
If you'd like to be informed when it's ready, please join the mailing list. I've so many other things to be getting on with that a little show of hands would be really useful in getting me to prioritise finishing the book ;-)
And thank you so much again for your enthusiasm today! If you liked those patterns, you're going to love the book.
