Today I continue in my new theme of recommending fellow crafters, although I think it would be more accurate to call this lady an artist.
Charlotte runs Alice & Willow, and she creates beautiful (and well made) corsets and skirts as well as wonderfully designed outfits. She’s just getting ready to launch both her halloween collection and her autumn/winter collection for this year so I thought it was the opportune moment to showcase her wares.
A remarkable amount of work goes into each outfit. The White Rabbit (above) is the most complicated design as it consists of the most complicated corset Charlotte makes – the Nymph lapel front design – and is a total of 7 pieces: a mini net underskirt, grey mini circle skirt, red bustle skirt, red panier side skirts, red bustle tail, Nymph corset and cropped jacket. Just as a point of interest, this outfit takes 20 hours to make, and the corset alone takes nearly 15 of those hours due to how complicated the design is.
Attention to detail also features heavily in Charlotte’s work. The skirt on this Snow White outfit has parts of a poem embroidered on it, and tells a story if read.
Moving away from the fairytale theme there are these Black Swan and White Swan outfits, inspired by the film.
