Description

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.

    gorgeous! How did you do the black vertical lines on the boning? I’ve always done mine with ribbon but there must be an easier way :)

      The boning casings are made from Black Satin Backed Coutil, cut to 1" wide and pressed using a 1cm bias binding maker. Other ways are to sew ribbon onto Coutil then make into casings. I always use coutil, because of the stresses made by the steels.

      Yes I love corsets as well. I have quite a few now, but don’t find time to wear them.
