New instructable on making a steampunk corset

I recently finished an instructable on making a steampunk corset. It includes an underbust pattern in pdf format, detailed instructions on selecting materials and making each part of the corset and some tips on how to get a good deal on supplies.

For the corset above I used a synthetic leather, although the pattern and directions can accommodate a variety of fabrics.
I've really been enjoying instructables, you may remember my Steampunk EKG project from last November.

New blue and silver steampunk corset design

My newest design uses a brighter brocade than the last few corsets I've made! This underbust corset either looks like something a mage in World of Warcraft might wear, or a fashionable steampunk lady.

Steampunk EKG

Steampunk EKG LED
Last night I created an instructable on how to make a steampunk EKG (Elektrokardiogramm)! If you’re unfamiliar with, it’s a website for people to upload and find instructions for DIY (do it yourself) projects. There are a lot of amazing projects on there, and they often hold contests with fantastic crafter prizes. If you're a fellow maker, I strongly recommend you join.

Steampunk utility corset with copper panels

I made this custom fitted utility corset for a customer who wanted copper brocade panels in the front. I think the copper stands out! I love this brocade, because it comes in so many colors. I can't wait to eventually use the red and hunter green brocade that I have (although probably not together).
