Throwback Thursday: Blue satin corset

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 crepe-back-satin overbust corset in shades of blue. Crepe-back-satin has a slightly textured finish, it’s not a totally smooth satin, but still has a lovely, elegant shine. The corset is lined in black cotton, and has an internal waist-stay.

The corset is made in three shades of blue:

  • navy blue at the centre front
  • wedgewood blue at the side panels
  • and baby periwinkle blue at the centre back

There is a centre front zipper (a strong zipper suitable for corset wear, not a dress zipper) and laces closed at the back with white cord through silver-tone three-piece grommets. The corset is bound in handmade baby periwinkle self-fabric bias.

  • The centre front length is 11″
  • The fully-closed waist measurement is 42″

This is NOT my “natural hip” design – this corset offers compression throughout the garment. The corset has 10 spring steel bones and 4 spiral steel bones at the sides for a total of 14 bones.

 

 

This corset has never been worn except for photos, and comes from a smoke-free home.  None of my corsets (unless otherwise noted) have modesty panels or garter hooks.
