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 mostly white silk underbust corset. The majority of the fashion fabric is white dupioni silk, and there are two front panels which are white silk with an overlay of cream sheer silk, embroidered with a random swirling pattern in off-white and silver.
There is decorative piping on all seams; a white rayon cord piping. The top and bottom are bound in hand-made self-fabric binding; white dupioni silk. The corset laces closed at the back with white cord through silver-tone three-piece grommets. The corset closes at front with a strong zipper (not a regular dress zipper).
This is a three-layer corset suitable for lengthy wear after getting used to the corset. It is lined and interlined in white cotton, and has an internal waist stay. There are 24 bones in this corset, which are a mix of spring steel and German plastic. There are no seams that are just plastic boning- the plastic is consistently supported by steel. (You don’t have to worry about the plastic mis-shaping as long as you don’t over-tighten too quickly.)
This is NOT my ‘natural hip’ design- this corset will compress throughout the garment.
- The centre-front length is 12.5″
- The waist is 37.25″ fully closed
This corset has never been worn, and comes from a smoke-free home. None of my corsets (unless otherwise noted) have modesty panels or garter hooks.
Love this sheer embroidered fabric? I’ve used it in another corset that I’ll show off next week!
