Better view of the harness waspie with suspender straps attached… thoughts? Really want to make more corset related things rather than lingerie, which isn’t exactlt sensible from a business perspective!

Woop! My designs on the @calico_pr catwalk. This is the Daniela babydoll made of Victorian chantilly lace, one of my favourites!

Finally got eyelets into the harness waspie and tried it on to test the shape - ignoring the double layered harness,  what does everyone think? It also has garter strap suspender attachments

New harness design with french chantilly beaded lace. Thoughts? Might introduce with a cheaper lace… #instalingerie #lace #karolinalaskowska #harness


Very limited edition #vintage 1950s chantilly #lace sets now available in the online shop - be quick though, only 1 or 2 pieces left per garment!

I’m not very good at keeping up with the whole fashion season thing but it has occured to me that I should start thinking more about designing a Spring/Summer collection… what do you want to see more of? Definitely planning some more ouvert knickers and open cup styles and maybe bringing back this one-off bra shape! Throw your suggestions at me!

So today one of my worst possible nightmares came true, in that my main trusty sewing machine died.

Corset is growing on me, mostly because of the mega-boob action. Sits mid bust but instagram hates nipples.

Hurray!  Thank you so much to @sparklewren for helping me out with finishing my #ococ14 corset - though it might not actually be finished as it could require more bling and fur…

Further progress on this #bespoke set - silk satin with English lace trims, cross over strappy details and lace appliqué. Matching suspender to come and embroidery and either crystals or beading also planned… #karolinalaskowska #lace #instalingerie #custom


Just finished this rather delicious plunge bra - champagne silk, French chantilly lace and lots of tiny freshwater pearls stitched by hand.  Hope its new owner is as pleased with it as I am!

Does anyone remember that photo I posted a while back of all the bra pattern pieces explaining the complexity of lingerie construction?  Well this is the bra, finally finished!  It’s a step away from my usual aesthetic but I’m still very pleased - French leavers lace full cup bra with internal support sling. 

And following on from the pattern piece photo theme,  a little bit about my style of working…. 

I actively try not to work on a single project from start to finish.  By working on different projects constantly,  I can keep things fresh and interesting and give each garment the attention it deserves. As an example, sewing a single bra in one sitting leaves me very frazzled - there’s so many different sewing processes that it’s difficult to keep focus, particularly if I’m working mostly in black (which sadly I usually am! It’s a curse on the eyes and causes many a headache). Currently I have 5 custom orders on the go,  of which I try to do a little work on each day - progress may be slower than I’d normally like but it ensures the quality stays at the level I want and that I can stay excited by each garment and give it the attention it deserves. 

Bit of a ramble but I hope it sheds some light on how I work! Do any other creatives want to share their working style? ❤
