Absinthe bodice!

So, now I've created a toile for the bodice, I decided to let the corset and chemise show a bit too... It gives an illusion of being much saucier than it actually is :) it looks fairly chunky cos all the seams are on the outside for easy fitting....

I've made the front panel in a different colour so I can really see the shape of the piece, like a big heart don't you think?

Sooooo, anyone got any good cocktail absinthe recipes? I love the green stuff!

I love the look of the contrast - yes in the shape of a heart - very cute!

Absinthe and cream soda is known as green silk and is DIVINE!

You should keep the contrast as it nice.

Oh I need a green corset in my wardrobe now,

Hi Jem,

"Anyone got any good cocktail absinthe recipes?"

I have a couple of hundred absinthe cocktails on my blog.
