AARRGGHH!!!!
Just wanted to show you guys what I did for my final project last year as I'm thinking of possibly making another one for my friends gallery/shop...
(you can click on the actual photo to see it properly)
I raided the local charity shops for the ties and made the wings out of different types of wire, wadding, crepe-y type of material and white bin liners. The wings attach at the back so it looks like a winged corset.
I had to sew the whole lot by hand as it was woven and attached to my dolly (it still is actually...lol!!) and the feathers were made individually
I was going to make it into a dress at one point but decided to chop it to corset size due to time running out
Hmmm...now I come to think of it again, although I wouldn't be making the wings and I probably would make it into the dress...I'm not too sure about the idea now...lol!!
Anyhoo, all thoughts would be very much appreciated...thanks :D

i did actually try this on the other week...omgoodness!!!...it is quite difficult to tie all the ties as they are on the back and it was quite heavy as well due to them being woven together... O.O ...manabunga, i love your last comment, lol!!! ^_^

thanks for the thumbs-up everyone...gone neko, tbh i've never actually tried it on cos by the time i finished it i'd had enough and wanted it out of the house...luckily, it went on a bit of a "look what the students have done here at this college" kind of show...i don't think the tutor really liked it as she kept saying that maybe if i'd done this or that, it might have been better (not really good for the old confidence levels...but never mind...)
anyhoo, thanks again everyone and maybe i'll try put it on later...;)
