Throwback Thursday: J-Rock neck corset

Today’s Throwback Thursday is a J-rock inspired neck corset or collar. I made this a number of years ago, so I don’t have any in-progress photos.  Like my Visual Kei mouth masks, this was inspired by Japanese street fashion.

To make this, I ended up actually draping the pattern, to get a skin-tight fit over complex curves.

The neck corset is made of black satin, lined in black cotton for comfort, and is trimmed with black lace at the lower edge.

The neck corset / collar is topstitched with purple thread, and closes in the back with snaps – unlike another neck corset I’ve made, the fit is not adjustable.

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 is an Asian dragon brocade with a matte finish, that I’ve hand-dyed a deep rose colour. The dragons show up as a brighter, lighter pink, while chrysanthemums are a darker red. The lining and interlining are both black cotton.
