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:
The outer fabric of this underbust corset is black cotton with white ghosts. The straight seams (not the curved hip seams) have exposed double-bone casings made of medium-weight PVC. The centre back has a black poly-cotton piped finish and the top and bottom is also bound in black poly-cotton binding. The lining is black cotton, and there is an internal waist stay. I don’t recall what the interlining is, but likely more black cotton.
This is my “natural hip” design which does not offer a great deal of compression to the hips, allowing for a very dramatic silhouette. The corset has 18 spring steel bones on the straighter seams, and 2 spiral steel bones on the curvy hip seams, for a total of 20 steel bones in this corset.
The corset has a front strong zipper (not a standard dress zipper) and the lacing is paracord through three-piece black-tone grommets.
- Fully closed waist measurement: 36.5″
- Center front length: 12″
This corset has been worn for photos and in one show, and comes from a smoke-free home. None of my corsets (unless otherwise noted) have modesty panels or garter hooks.
If this fabric combination looks familiar, it’s because I used it twice… also check out the other ghostly corset here!
