Brooklyn, New Yo...
I love making corsets. I made this one for fun, just to sell (even thought the fabric is STUNNING and I covet it). It’s scrap fabric from my old job. Something like $250 a yard. It seemed a sin to use it for anything less fabulous than an hourglass corset.
I used the Laughing Moon victorian corset pattern. This is my favorite corset pattern ever. I’ve thought about making my own, but then I remember that Laughing Moon has already made the Best Corset Pattern Ever, so mine would be redundant.
silk, busk, metal boning, grommets, lacing
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
