Those are absolutely fabulous! I really, really like the first one. What is that one going for?

Thanks!

I typically charge around $330 for that corset (a Sabine style) for long distance orders, custom made to the individual's measurements.

On the one in the 1st picture,

Could you make that as a waist chincher for a guy? and what measurements would you need
from me. (thinks it would go great with my brown kilt)

Theoretically its possible, but I'd have to redesign the yoke for a male figure, and that's best done in person. You don't happen to be local to Minnesota, hmm?

The very last photo is one of my Charlotte cinchers, available for the penny-pinching, fashion friendly crowd :) It is made from the same materials as the corset dress in the photos just above it. I love them both, and wish that they fit me!

Oh baby! Can't WAIT to see your stuff on Friday!!!!

Also, a question: What grommet setter do you use, and do you love it? I make so much stuff with lace-up details that I think it would be a good investment!
scoundrelle
Jul. 27th, 2008 07:31 pm (UTC)
It is without a doubt one of the best investments I've made (aside from a Juki industrial sewing machine). It is an Osborne grommet setter, and I got it from Farthingales (www.farthingales.on.ca)

I do offer rental time for my grommet setter as well, so if you have 00 grommets you need to set, you can come over to my place and rent it per hour or whatever, for a nominal fee.

those are just beautiful, and the photography is lovely. I wasn't at all sure what to make of kakkoi.

Vey nice clean lines!! Love the simplicity which shows off your draping and patternmaking skills. Too bad you're in Minnesota, so I can't see it in person.

Jul. 27th, 2008 07:44 pm (UTC)
There will definitely be more photos to follow, and from what I hear I will be able to get a good video of my runway show as well, so hopefully everyone will be able to see it!

GAH!

*chin drops*

That brown corset is LOVELY. I wish I could carry off underbust corsets. Having been blessed with extra amounts of cleavage, I'd look like a porn reject. That corset though....I'd want it anyways.

LMAO

I totally understand. I made one of the Sabine corsets for myself a couple of years ago, and with F sized breasts I looked like I belonged in a Hentai.

May I ask if you have a website, so that we can see further examples of this gorgeous work? It'd be great to know how we can purchase your stuff!

sure thing - www.scoundrelleskeep.com

I don't have the apparel portion of the website running yet, as these posts are just a preview to whet the appetite of those out there who are interested :) I hope to have most of it up and available by the 8th of August.

Amazing! beautiful in design and execution. I look forward to seeing more!

Do you ever experiment with asymmetry in your designs?

I want to know your secrets @A@

I'm plannig a corset in the future (not for steampunk) and I'm afraid it's gonna end up a wrinkled mess. I know to buy steel boning, but I've seen even some boned corsets turn out wrinkled. ;~; Help a brother out?

Aww, thanks! I'm glad to see I'm doing it right. Its very natural to me, I've been doing steampunk for myself for so long... Its nice to be able to share it with others.

OMG that's stunning. When I graduate from school and get a job I'm going to invest in a nice corset.

Oh my God, that first corset is absolutely gorgeous!
I'm so tempted to buy that right now, but college tuition is coming up right around the corner D:

If you have any extra in your student loan, let me know *winks*

naw, corsets aren't school supplies. no matter how you look at it. LMAO.

www.scoundrelleskeep.com is the online store. I work from home to keep costs down, but as demand grows, we'll see where it all goes. I've been making corsets for clients for 5 years now, and only recently expanded to feature my steampunk designs. I've been designing steampunk fashion for myself for 6 or 7 years, and its nice to finally share it with others!
