You'd be surprised at how hard it is to find really simple fabric patterns that are suitable for making corsets. For instance, I've had tons of people contact me and ask me if I had black and white stripe. Um.....no. It's just that the fabric companies don't seem to make upholstery jacquard in a huge variety of crazy fabrics, even though they do that with cottons. I guess I can understand, because I'm using upholstery fabric, and not a lot of people want to decorate with crazy bold fabrics....at least not the customer base that they're marketing to. Anyhow, when I found this red and white stripe, I was overjoyed, and just wanted to share it with everyone. It's a beautiful upholstery weight, so the boning will never pop through and it can take a beating and keep on kicking! ;) If you are dying to have this, hop on etsy, and you can buy one for $79. Yay!! As always, I love all of you (my customers) and I can't thank you enough for supporting my business, being my friend, and asking me crazy questions that make for great conversation pieces! ;) Happy Holidays!
