I wasn’t having the best of days. I won’t bore you with the sordid details, but I had received some bad financial news that had me in the dumps.
(Ok, some details for the morbidly curious: Who knew that blood tests for vitamin levels could rack up to 15 hundo? I’ve never had the best of health, but they should put that stuff on a menu… I may have made different decisions had I known the catastrophic effect on my wallet.)
Anyway, I had stopped by Dark Garden on its closed for business day to take some pictures for my side business — EuPASTIES: Euphrates makes pasties! (They’re totally fabulous. You should definitely get some.)
I heard the whirring of a singular sewing machine in the back and my name squeaked as gently as a kitten:
Euphrates? I’m working on something I think you’d like to see…
To my delight and surprise, I discovered that the Dark Garden leather stitcher was hard at work crafting my snake skin printed cow hide corselette!
She commented that the black leather piping was a nice touch. Fuck yeah, it is!
I’ve seen a lot of corsets, and I wanted one that was really …me — well, the part of me that’s really Laura Dern in Wild at Heart. I had this leather ordered specially from the Hide House and I am so pleased! I can’t wait to slither into it.
Just had to share!
