An 1860’s inspired corset in burgundy, with black contract boning and black lace trim. The corset also has a modesty panel making it ideal for evening wear. The skirt is full length with a fish tail detail.
This was made for an exhibition last October and was centre piece to my stall. I would love to wear it, but as it is made in an English size 12 (to fit the manniquin) I haven’t a chance.
The corset is made with polyester satin and coutil. The skirt is polyester satin backed crepe.
What do you think of these summery styles?
