Blue flocked overbust corset (with flash)

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 lightweight modern Victorian design corset with a sheer blue fabric over pink cotton. The blue fabric has black flocking and silver glitter. The pink fabric shows through the blue sheer fabric, creating a colour-changing or shot effect. (This is most visible in the photos taken with flash.)

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).

Last week I showed off a white silk corset using gorgeous sheer embroidered fabric, and this corset uses the same beautiful fabric!

A bit about this corset:

This is an off-white overbust corset with a variety of textures on the outside. Some panels are white silk with sheer cream silk with cream and silver swirly embroidery. Other panels are off-white shantung silk with applied satin ribbon. The ribbon is a darker cream. Other panels are plain off-white shantung silk.

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 an overbust two-layer corset. The lining is black cotton, while the outer fabric is purple hand-dyed dupioni silk. Four panels of the corset (centre front and side-front) are embellished with black net and golden floral fabric. Because of the nature of hand-dyed silk, there are variations in the colour throughout the corset – these are not stains or flaws; just a factor with hand-dying.

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
