Couture Corset Body

"The Empress"

"The Empress" is a richly embroidered couture corset body, with extravagant spikey collar and hip-pieces.

It is made from rose coloured satin, with elaborate burgundy lace appliqué, antique gold synthetic leather cutwork, beading and Swarovski crystal decoration.
The body has built in bra-cups and is closed with lacing down the entire backside.

The collar and hip pieces are made from sturdy thermoplast and are also decorated with Swarovski crystals and golden metal spikes. 
A detachable silk train can be added to the collar on request.

Open Source Clothing.

Now I feel it imperative to reblog this, because the project seems to have hit a snag: The video they put up has been taken down because of claims of 3rd-party content, whatever whatever corporate lawyer stuff internet throttling stuff. That makes me think that Bennetton or one of the others whose stores were glimpsed in the background got their hooks in Vimeo.
So I thought I’d tell you a yarn about how this thing works:
You download the open-source plans for the machine.
You build it.
You download their open-souce clothing-maker program.
You enter the desired measurements into the fields (the ones I remember from the video were arm and neck and chest measurements, so I’m sure they have waist and/or hips too)
You print out your sweater, or hat, or scarf, or cardigan, or whatever it was that you selected. It takes an hour to print out the sweater, working off of the two yarn spools that you can see in the bottom right corner of this .gif
That’s it. Custom-fit, custom-color clothing in an hour, for the price of yarn. Can you see why one of the clothing companies targetted in the video might have felt threatened enough to force the video to come down?
