FO: Latex skirt of Doom

I’ve always wanted to work with latex and leather – learning new skills, not to mention being able to make my own fetish outfits for a lot less. Uber ran a Working with Latex course a few weeks back which I highly recommend.

I thought maybe we’d make a wrist cuff. Or something basic.

We got to make clothing! Hurrah! Well, actually we got to make either a really short mini skirt or a tank top.

I asked the teacher very nicely if I could please alter that skirt pattern…. to a below knee fitted wiggle skirt! Much more my style:
It looks a bit wonky on one side, but thats because i’m standing funny.
I really like working with latex. Everything is glued instead of sewn, you get to sniff chemicals and use a rotary cutter (ooh! danger!) – exciting!
If only latex sheets weren’t so expensive (you can only get it from the UK and it costs a bomb to post out) i’d be experimenting more right now.
Next up – leather. I just got my hands on a leather industrial sewing machine and some leather – I just need to be able to fit it in my sewing room…

    There are a couple of places – Supatex (http://www.supatex.com/) and Radical Rubber (http://www.radicalrubber.co.uk/) – to get them to send to Australia you have to buy about a minimum of $200 worth :(.
    You can get it on ebay.co.uk too ;).

    And thanks!

    ooo, spunky!

    I used to have some gorgeous latex hotpants in my younger years.

    Ah, memories 🙂
