Default MMTPT452~March 21, 2017~Butterflies and Bustiers...Lift Them Up Girls

Welcome to Teapot Tuesday
the Sisterhood of the Traveling Teaparty
and Challenge #452


Butterflies and Bustiers...Lift Them Up Girls


Note: Anyone is welcome to play! You automatically become a Teapotter the first time you play in our challenge. Also, you do not have to write a story. You just have to be inspired by the teapot or by the story about this week's location! Have fun! If this is your first Teapot Tuesday Challenge, please mention that in your commentary so we can be sure to greet you properly, in pure Teapot Tuesday fashion! Your participation in Destination Station is 100% voluntary and not at all required. Just have fun!


The Rest of the Story:

1: Did you ever just sit and watch a butterfly whirl on the wing currents, lifting up higher and higher. They always seem to carry my thoughts with them and it always brightens my day a little to watch them. Just lifting me up so to speak when I need it.

2: Well ladies, that is also what a good bustier is made to do;-lift the girls up. And that is just what fellow butterfly watcher and bustier crafter Lulu Lila Sue is all about. Down in her workroom she can be found amidst the piles of lace, ribbons, boning, stays, hooks, and all the other necessary things to add to the fancy fabrics she finds to give the girls a much needed lift. And a lift to your spirits as well when the girls are comfortable and proud. She is very committed to her craft and is determined to see all the girls in town standing up the way they should.

3: In order to perform this magic, she takes measurement after measurement and nips and tucks the muslin just so to make the best fitting pattern she possibly can for each lady and then makes the lovely and sometimes fancy bustiers in several stages. Each stage requires more try-ons, more measuring, more tucking, and more snipping. Before the stays are put in the fit must be perfect, the lines must be slim and not bulky, and the "extras" in just the right places so that no one but you knows about the beads, sequins, and lace that you are wearing out in public on what they think is just an ordinary day. "For Shame" we dare to be fancy on a week-day.

4: So needless to say that one of these super customized, over the top creations takes a long time to be ready, and the cost may be a bit prohibitive but when you see how well you look with the girls properly supported, it doesn't matter. And Lulu Lila Sue has many repeat customers and always gets orders for special bustiers for special occasions, like weddings and anniversaries. Or Valentine's day....Ooooh La La, and hubbie's birthday.....Ummmm

5: And this also requires lots of shopping and visiting the "Fashion St" stores and peeking and poking into all the little shops that might be hiding some really wild and fancy add ons. Well, that does add lots of fun, bling and wow factor but it does cause a bit of a storage issue. Esp. when you aren't of the methodical type and you tend to be a little hither and yon like Lulu Lila Sue tends to be. So on this lovely day after seeing a particularly lovely pale pink butterfly floating around her garden, she is determined to add just a teensy bit of that really fancy gauzy embroidered Italian silk to this creation she is working on now. Trouble is, she can't remember where she put it or even what color bag it was in.

6: RUTROH!!!! Teapotters, surely someone has some fancy pink frou frou piece somewhere that she can add. And if one of you is a champion organizer, that would surely be appreciated as well by all her friends and family who are continually getting waylaid to help her look for things.



Challenge Translation:

Butterflies, flowers, and even some bustiers...bring on the joy, hope, and "you can do its" to lift up her spirits.

Destination Station:

This week our teaparty bus is headed to SC. If you would like a destination for your card, how about sending it to fellow SCSr Elizabeth. She was brought to our attention by Teapotter Muscrat

To see why as well as get the address to mail your card, please visit post #558in the Teapot Tuesday Destination Station thread. Please remember that just because you participate in a Teapot Tuesday challenge that is combined with a card drive request, it does not mean that you are REQUIRED to send your cards. It is totally 100% voluntary!


Here is a quick link to MMTPT452 challenge gallery


Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT452 in your upload and post a comment here so we can all see your card!

Ever want to get a jump on next week's challenge card? SCS has given Sheri (KSNurse) permission to create an email Teapot Tuesday Cheater Group and email the challenge out on the Saturday before the Tuesday of the challenge so you girls can have the weekend to make your card. Send her a pm with your email address if you wanna be a Cheater!

If you are confused about these challenges, see the first sticky post of this thread for more information. There is also a directory of individual challenges.

Here's my card for Elizabeth. I didn't put a sentiment on it. I figured she could use it again if she wanted to.

Ally this was a very interesting layout, one I really enjoyed putting together.

This is also going to a long time stamper on SCS, who is fighting breast cancer and needs a little 'pick me up'. You can find her info on MMTPT452.

A few days late, but I managed to get a card for Elizabeth complete.

For Elizabeth

I had fun with this challenge and used a stamp set that doesn't see much ink.

TECHNICAL DIFFICULTY!!! Yikes! For some reason I can not link to my card, but it is called "Elizabeth's tone on tone MMTPT452". I will send it out to her along with a few goodies ASAP!
