Fabric Floral Corsages

I do like a bit of a fabric floral corsage … as those who know me well will confirm – I almost always have one somewhere in my outfit, either in my hair or pinned to my jacket. I think they’re perfect everyday, and they do add a dash of glamour for an evening out.

I’m so happy that they remain a big style note this season … it’s given me the perfect excuse to play with fabric and make some corsages of my own, for you.

Here’s a selection for you … something for everyone, I hope … a range of colours, perfect with this season’s fashion palette, and a range of sizes, from a tiny little rosebud corsage to a big, bold black-lace hellebore. You can see these and more in my Etsy shop

Now I know you can get them from Accessorize, or Claire’s, or Top Shop, and even Primark, but these are different … completely handmade, totally unique, each is a one-off – so no-one will have one just like yours.

And I’ve used vintage fabrics, and embellished them with vintage buttons, beads and elements of costume jewellery … so the materials are great quality, and durable, and, as a total bonus, are about as eco-friendly and ethical as an accessory can get – without the ethical fashion price tag, too.

Looks like a win to me ….

How do you like to wear yours?

 

Working small and slow

Getting back into the swing of things after a wretched couple of weeks … the cold I had developed into a full-blown flu that laid me out for the best part of a week, and then, just when I thought things were starting to pick up, the muscle in my neck and shoulder seized up and I got to spend another week alternating between total agony and medicated blankness.

I’m still feeling slow, and because RSI might be a contributing factor to the shoulder problem, I’m working small and in short bursts before I get back to working on the bigger, detailed pieces … and so, some little monochrome corsages in linen and lace.
