Investigating selected key words from this year's theme (satin, intersection of light, stripes, interlacing, ribbon and the softness of light), I approached this project with the desire to weave a fabric in satin ribbon which changed in different light conditions. Using a technique known as triaxel weaving or Japanese meshwork, I created a handwoven satin fabric with 6mm single sided satin ribbon and broke up the woven panels with intense black satin for contrast.   This corset has been a project of firsts for me; using satin, weaving my own fabric to use in my work, underbust shape with interesting curves on the hems and construction techniques and I have enjoyed every moment.   It's been wonderful to incorporate my knowledge of weaving with my developing skills in corsetry.

Never thought one can make fabric with ribbons... That's really good!

I wouldn't recommend white on white, I went a bit cross eyed

I love the hem shapes! And I was definitely going to ask about the interesting fabric, and then you said you wove it yourself! It looks great, I hope it didn't make you go too blind.

Thank yousmile
I've told myself I wouldn't weave this pattern again, but it looks so good I'm already thinking about another sheer version

Doing your own fabric was a great idea, it really adds a nice and interesting texture to you corset. The shape is also gorgeous, I really like it!

An inspired interpretation of the category, which really works. I love the way that the shade of the ribbon varies according to the light- even white can be dark. Perfectly styled too- the top hat immediately made me want to click & see more, and also makes the whole image memorable.
