Corset "Trompe l'oeil"

Added Oct 20, 2012

by Craftine

Castlerock, France






Here is one of my last corset , my very first overbust and one of my most ambitious corset.
I used black lace inserts at sides to create the illusion of a tiny waist. The black velvet ribbons also create the illusion of multiple bones. Finally, I padded neckline and hips to create relief and added removable garters on the sides.

- 4 pieces pattern
- 2 layers of fabrics
- heavy cotton lining
- the waist tape is sewn between the two layers of fabrics

Material Notes

cotton, velvet

    I have experienced aesthetic pleasure looking at your corset. Can’t imagine amount of work you put in realisation of it!

      Thank you Redsonia, It took me about a week to do it because I had to redraw the pattern and fit it before cutting the fabric.
