I’m calling this a Throwback Thursday because this is actually a corset I made a while ago (so I don’t have any work-in-progress photos either). I made this to sell, back when I was hoping to get commissions for custom work (I’m not looking to do custom work anymore).
A bit about this corset:
This is a pink and black brocade plus-sized overbust corset. It has steel boning throughout. There are a total of 18 bones in this corset.
The brocade is geometric, with a vaguely medieval feel. I’m unsure of the fibre content of the brocade, but believe that it’s polyester.
This is an early design, and although it has a waist stay, it only is a two-layer corset. The lining is black cotton broadcloth. The front opening is lingerie-style hook-and-eyes, and it is laced in the back with twill tape (which you can replace with ribbon or cord if you desire) through one-piece eyelets. Around the eyelets I’ve reversed the fabric for a slightly different look, and the corset is bound with self-fabric (reversed) top and bottom. There’s a small satin bow at centre front with a faux pearl. This corset should NOT be used for tight-lacing.
- The centre front length is 15″
- The waist is 43″ fully closed.
This corset has never been worn except to take a few photos, and comes from a smoke-free home. None of my corsets (unless otherwise noted) have modesty panels or garter hooks.
